Hey guys, I am getting ready to join the OL community and I would like to know which parts are a must have for this car. I do not want to spend money where it is not needed. I like both off-road and rock climbing.

I'd say go for the Kyosho or 3racing oil shocks. Other than that the only other upgrade I have on mine is the Titanium Gear (because I broke a tooth on the original).

I also added +3 racer wheels with Kyosho MT tires. (you'll need to put a stock Narrow kyosho tire in the middle of the MT tire. to hold it in place if you do this.)

Makes a great racer of you have jumps on the track. Also the longer wheelbase bodies like the hummer H1 have the best stability.

So the OL series cars have different wheel bases or is it just for the hummer?

really, that sucks ! I still have mine on there and I've been racing it for 2 years. I have mended it a time or two. I actually have the GPM rear gearbox, I just haven't needed to put it on yet.

if you get a RTR it will come with different lenghts of shock towers, each body is one of a couple of settings. you'll have everything you need in the Kit.

they do very from short (pajero) to long (H1)

The only thing I remember as being mandatory is a delrin or titanium main gear for the gearbox. This gear will strip very quickly, especially if you like popping wheelies.

if your running the longest wheelase, it hardly ever, if at all, pops wheelies on a stock motor, at least thats what ive found.

for the shocks on my monster i used radline aluminum shocks you have to cut the screws that comes with them but that's it and you have aluminum shocks for around $10 and you can get them at target
