    I was at the track and was looking at a rc8.2 with all the new upgrades on it. I asked him about them because I was considering them for my buggy and he told me not to follow the nitro setup for my electric. I'm curious what upgrades would be beneficial for my Factory Team RC8.2e?

    The plastic rear hub carriers are strong and I never broke one but I think the aluminum ones will add a little more "peace of mind".

    I only added an aluminum servo horn on mine.... Once again for "peace of mind" !

    I added those 2 plus springs and shock pistons. I was curious if the new front hub & caster blocks set up was worth the cost or the Ghea C&D plates too

    i have done the front hub and caster setup and it tames the steering down alot. i think it was worth the money. i have also done avid rc steering arm and rear pivot pills (lot cheaper than ghea c and d plates). i have also done the kyosho light blue spring a nice up grade as well.

    Ran my buggy with the new front hubs and new caster c-hub carriers and really like it. I really noticed more low speed steering and it really calmed the car down.
