    Must have upgrades

    Just picked up a MERV VXL and was wondering what are the must have upgrades? Servo? What are the weak points on this truck? I am running 3s Lipo.

    Going through this recently on my own, I got a bit to share here.

    - Swap out rocker bushings for bearings
    - Swap out steering bushings with bearings
    - change all plastic hollow balls (they are on the suspension components) with steel hollow balls
    - Upgrade your springs to a minimum of Pink summit springs ( I am using blue in front and purple in back)
    - change your shock oil to 70-90 wt
    - Install a center diff
    - Motor heatsink and fan
    - Optional but good, T-Bone Racing chassis brace
