early Happy Birthday!!! Jatotheripper recommended going brushless (VXL or MM Pro or Sidewinder,Lipo (2s 5000) and that's a good idea! When you first get the thing raise the rear body mounting post so it won't rub the body. Check out going with some kind of ProLine tires ie:bowties, calibers or something like that. Shocks? the stockers are fine but change the oil to at least 50wt FT/Rear and eventually think about the Big Bores, or get aluminum shock caps. The stock body?--get rid of it and find something Pro-line: Carnage, Desert Rat, Hardcore, etc or something else-- That's about it!
