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.

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

These might help for upgrade ideas.

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.

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.

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.

MHO

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)
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. Ask me how I know!

Most of all Have Fun!

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

HPI did it has been discontinued (Might be able to find one on ebay). CKRC has a bug body which is really your only choice on the market right now
