    ya I would get the same stuff and also there are some nice blue aluminum Shocks if you go to towerhobbies and type in 4tec it will show you them, and also some Arms and stuff (aluminum) Also I would get the aluminum belt gears hat traxxas makes and the hubs. I would say from what you listed that 4tec would easyly hit 50+, but probly bad run time. Go for 3300 packs :D

    you might also want to looka t aftermarket company parts cause traxxas sometimes runs a little more expensive. ebay always has the best deals

    well take a Tmaxx for example, alot of people make them totaly aluminum and crap and they drive them and race so I am thinking they cant be much heaver if any.
