Default what should i do!

i recently traded my Losi Desert Truck for a Axial Rock Racer with a Integy 65T motor. I was thinking about buying the Proline tube chassis for the AX10, and maybe the Axial metal suspension links. If anybody has bought these parts, let me know if these parts make a difference in performance. Also what parts do you recommend to make this truck perform better.

thank you, Kellen

I would definitely stay away from the proline tube frame, it will affect your performance in a couple of ways. First, its big, so you'll lose alot of manuverability in tighter places. Second, its tall and its heavy and that will raise your CG and make sidehilling a nightmare and be less stable.

But the links are a very good idea! They will increase strength and get rid of some of the slop in the suspension that comes from having plastic links. Plus they look alot better

If you are looking for good performance a good thing to do get your CG as low as possible and if you are able to place as much of the weight including electronics as far to the front as you can. Having good forward weight bias helps alot!

Another thing you could do is replace the stock rock lizard tires. They are way to stiff!
