Probably a stage 2 suspension set up you can buy one at ckrccrawlers.com or just fab one yourself and you can also flip your lower links gives it more clearance and that's basically all I've done to my creeper besides adding some white rovers and put 10oz in the front and 6oz in the rear and I love the way it crawls now

It is generaly seen as swapping them end for end. This is you take a lower link out and turn it round and fire it back in.
I did not bother with that and ran them flat so that the "S" is layed flat to the ground.
I then straightened them all and love it.
70mm uppers and 99% of the twist is gone.

Most people will tell you Rovers are the go.
Learn to set up your crawler and adjust the suspension etc before you rush out and buy new rubber.
I have hacked and cut at the stock tires and now have a set of hacked and cut Lizzards. These less than perfect tires are great for me as I get to see each minor tweak that I make in the suspension setup.

My mates CK with Grabbers is left on its lid on most climbs.
Rubber is good.
Setup is better.

I would say FLM lockers and Junfac driveshafts is the biggest thing that needs improvement on the creeper.

My most noticeable change was getting the battery off the top and White Rovers..... I also did FLM lockers and a homebrew stage 2 with losi shocks but tires and lowering the battery would be top on my list.

I just started crawling with mine and the Rovers are a must. I'm running my rovers with the stock Venom foam and they have to much traction...I am also rocking the CKRC stage II kit and I am out crawling a LCC and an AXIAL with comparable mods.

Stage II suspension, weight the front at about 6-7 oz each front, lower the battery for sure, Im running a 2 cell lipo 2200 mah pack on the rear axle, get baout an hour run time with my navak Goat 2s brushless system...

Tires??? I like the panther leopards!! with soft memory foam on a 1 inch wide Vanquish SLW...and definately a 250 oz plus steering servo...Dig unit really is nice too....I used 2 paisr of 7 dollar steel traxxas links for my lower links and bent them myself...Created a lot of extra clearance...FLM lockers for sure and some traxxas steel yokes with traxxas drive shafts....no problems yet!!

If your just getting into it A new set of rovers or sedonas are going to go further than the ckrc suspension kit, which in my opinion is lacking anyway. And if you intend on competing a dig unit is a must.
