Default Things to upgrade/watch out for Sawback 4LS & Sawback Sport

So... I have both the Sawback 4LS and Sawback Sport kits. I decided to built the 4LS first.

Any parts I should upgrade right away? I've searched through this section and so far I've seen...

1. GMade Carbon Steel Drive Shaft
2. GMade Zero Ackerman knuckles, CHub, and steering rod for zero ackerman?
3. New CVA's? (I've hard the GMade ones are no good? what should I use with the zero ackerman knuckles? GPM?)

Anything else I should be looking to get for both of my Sawbacks?

1. If you're driving hard, then yes.
2. Definitely yes. Stock steering is pretty poor if you're used to Axial etc.
3. New CVA yes. The 4LS takes the long ones, and I believe the Sport takes the shorter. I got the Junfac ones, but ordered them from eBay for faster shipping:

4. A driver! They look very lonely without one.

Just ordered zero Ackerman setups for both sawbacks. I've built up the 4ls chassis up to the point where I need to install the servo and steering. So just waiting for the parts now. Also have a 35t motor in the way. All I have for brushed are tamiya silver cans at the moment.
