im not positive but im pretty sure you can bolt either a 2.5r or a 3.3 in. new pipe would be recommended.
after run oil prevents the motor from corroding and/or locking up. everytime you run it it should be used. or you can use wd 40 if you run it every two weeks or less.
towerhobbies is the cheapest and has the parts most readily available. your local hobby shops are great when you need hands on help

forgot with the oil or wd40 you spray in the carb and through the glow plug opening. then crank it a few times to ensure it spreads.

a 2.5 or 3.3 will both bolt right in but you have to be careful with the 3.3 because it will destroy your drivetrain if you do not beef it up.

this will tell you all you need to know about tuning

ARO isnt really needed unless you won't be running it for a week-1/2+.

Uncle had problems with his engine being realllly hard to turn over from using ARO everytime after he ran it.

As far as the roll cage, you don't need one. Get a decent body and you shouldn't have to worry unless you drop it off a cliff.

But it provides a huge bad-*** factor?
Aluminum parts are always nice. Harder to break, they look a helluvalot nicer, they move easier. I'm replacing all the plastic parts in my TT-01 with aluminum.

They also cost a 'helluvalot' more, and in some areas, arent even necessary.

i know theyre more, but i found some pretty cheap deals on ebay
i still need to know what all i need to replace.
i have no idea what a turnbuckle is, and a bulkhead
only thing i cant find cheap is a set of drive shafts in aluminum. cheapest ive found is 75 for both front and rear shafts and the cv(?) axels that go to the wheels
i want a supercharger for it, they really make that big of a difference?

When you break your plastic steering arms, you'll understand.

Yeah, but once you replace them, it kinda looks like a sore spot on your car.
Aluminum dampers are nice too, but you monster truck guys don't worry about that. Your car comes with big *** shocks already.

ARO is highly recomended, its cheap and works great. ARO takes out the excess gas in the chamber so it wont sit in there and corrode or seize up.

Aluminum is not needed for the most part. Very few parts need aluminum, and this is coming from the guy who has an all aluminum savage. Trust me, its all for looks and usualy is weeker than stock on places like A-arms, body posts, etc. But the only company I would recomend those parts from is FLM because they will send you new ones if you break them.
