    Read your own post. It makes no sense. You need suspension upgrades but no shocks? Followed by a rambling list of other parts, including a differential.

    Also, youíve posted this same quote multiple times now in multiple threads. Youíre basically just wasting everybodyís time here, which is disrespectful.

    Do some research on your own. All the answers are already out there. Why donít you cut and paste that last post into google and see what it comes back with?

    What you really need first, is some punctuation. This is too hard to read, and if your old enough to post, your old enough to know this. Iíll echo whatís been said, do a little research before you throw up some more random words, please.

    Look up what model # you have and then click on support and go to the exploded views and they list optional parts they have. Like others stated Google, Amazon or Ebay all list stock and after market parts, just punch in the part # your looking for.

    Click on parts and accessories at the top of the page and scroll down until you find your model then click and it will show you all the parts for your model on the company website.

    Thing is, you have to actually read it yourself. Thereís lots of good info info on there. I used this thread to upgrade two rustlers, with great results.

    Read the thread. If youíre upgrading an XL-5, the VXL parts are exactly the same. And technically, you DONíT have an XL-5 anyways, if youíve already changed out the ESC and motor.

    So again, read the thread and pick what you think will fit your needs.

    You could also check out this link, it might be right up your alley:

    Hehehe... Iím usually a pretty patient guy, way more so since becoming a father to two wild boys. The OP here has really just pushed my buttons.

    I really thought the bulletproof VXL thread would have sufficed. Like I mentioned, I used it to upgrade two rustlers, and was really happy with the results.

    Why ask for help if you wonít take advice. No one can tell you what exactly to buy with links. Ever seen the remake of the Italian Job. Edward Nortonís character as no imagination or real ideas of his own. So when he gets rich, he buys what all of his other crew wants.
    Do yourself a favor, and research on this forum, and others. See what works and what doesnít. Then make your own decisions on what to buy and where to buy it.
    And for the love of god, learn how to communicate effectively, using words and punctuation. Youíre really taking a beating and donít seem to be getting why. Please reread the thread from the beginning.
