$100 upgrades
wut upgrades would you guys suggest with $100
no digs or servos
wut do you guys think about the ShaftD chassis?

MrNate 11-15-2008 04:54 PM

A shaft d or black widow an aluminum hubs and knuckles would be a good upgrade. Maybe some Losi crawler shocks if you don't need the aluminum.

Mr.Cool 11-15-2008 05:02 PM

so the losi shocks are better than the axial ones???

Yes, but just upgrading to Axial Aluminum shock bodies is more than sufficient for most of us.

These might help for upgrade ideas.

I got a $50 Gift card to a online site that has a bunch of crawler stuff called eastendmachining.com I got thier dual reverse trianglation skid, 4 bent links, and the aluminum upper 3 link. i would also reccomend aluminum steering knucles and carriers too.

Mr.Cool 11-15-2008 05:53 PM

wut shocks and springs would go well with the shaftD chassis

Montigo 11-15-2008 09:38 PM

I don't know what you have right now or not, but you should def looking into getting a split pack to put on the front axle if your still mounting the batt in the stock location, this will make the biggest difference, i would also recomend going to 4-link and rear bent links if you don't have them.

Mr.Cool 11-15-2008 10:04 PM

where can i get the four link and how much are they???

i was planning on getting parts in this order

1. internal springs
2. stick on weights
3. losi claws and cut foams into stars
4. front and rear bent links
5. shaftD chassis
6. split pack
7. baja bug body

Montigo 11-16-2008 02:19 AM

you should def get the split pack first, that made such a huge! difference, i bought the 4-link here http://www.tcscrawlers.com/AX10-Scor...p-2-c-283.html it comes with everything you need, except for the rod ends, but i def recomend getting the split pack first.

ShaftD $36
Axial Bent Lowers $12
TCS 4 link front and Rear $10
Panther tires $40

$98 Total

Then save up for a Dig Set up.

Go to a local tire store and ask for some of the stick on weights. Most places will give you quite a bit for free.

cpd438 11-16-2008 11:45 AM


1)Losi Claws/Panthers (terrain depending) and Memory foams (Weights are free at the tire shop, like Gixxer said, do that now)
2)Driveshaft upgrade (Stampede, MIP, Revo, Etc)
3)Split packs
4)New body of some sort
5)Hi-tech or JR Hi torque servo (Lets not start that debate either)
6)Long arm, parallel (as a starting point) 4 link for at least the rear
7)Losi Crawler Shocks or equivalent (as soon as you 4 link you'll destroy the stockers if you haven't already)
8)Aluminum beadlocks (Cuz by now you have surely stripped out the inside hex's of the stock wheels)

I don't like internal springs. They limit the compression (Unless your a drooper) and are a pain to change. I prefer to limit extension of the shocks instead.

I have made all these mods and more (Dig, front 4 link, moved tranny forward, etc) with out ever changing from the stock chassis.

There are alot of people on this board that know 10x what I do, so I think most importantly you should spend some time browsing, because it will save you money in the long run. "thumbsup" Ask me how I know!:roll:

Most of all Have Fun!

Mr.Cool 11-16-2008 01:06 PM

i got some internal springs today, and velco to stick the electronics on but im gunna get the weights this week, and i havent got kit yet im ordering it on ebay this week

Mr.Cool 11-16-2008 01:54 PM

also, wut company makes the baja bug body?

Mr.Cool 11-16-2008 01:55 PM

and one more thing... i can keep the regular top links and get new rod ends for the four link right

Gozer 11-16-2008 03:47 PM

You should be able to use some of the spare rod ends in the kit to make the upper links.
