SSD brass knuckles and brass rear axle weights, as the wheelbase is very short and the center of gravity is high on the UMG10...

Heavy Brass Knuckles for SCX10 II / Pro44 Axle

Brass Weights for SCX10 II

I have the brass knuckles and rear axles weights that SSD makes for the Vaterra Ascender and my '72 Chevy K10 works much better with them installed.

Overdrive would be my first. Made the biggest difference of the upgrades I have done.

That is the default gear ratio, you need 27T/8T...

Also, really smooths out the transmission...

These, they are perfect for the 6 bolt pattern making them stronger. Stock gearing is 30/8. I just use one in my front diff.
