aluminum wheelnuts
tires/wheels
bearings
CF T plate
Front suspension springs

That will eat your 50.....

With the next 50 (maybe more)
aluminum motor pod, hop up motor and disc damper

The next 50
ball diff and top shock

then the next 100 (maybe more)
an aluminum front end for the car

That pretty much covers it!
Maybe throw in some Oil and cleaning spray to keep the engine and
bearings clean and lubed!
Oh and maybe a small paint brush to sweep the dust out of the body/chassis area too

+1 with what everybody said...
tires (go with a softer compound)
bearings (will make you run smoother)
cf t plates (better than the stock plastic ones)
where do you plan on running your z?

good luck hope this helps.. :D

i forgot king pins.. either stainless steel ones or polish the stock ones.

For an MR03, I feel that a disc damper would be more important than front springs, kingpins and t-plate... You can flip the stock kingpins move the ball from the upper arm to the lower arm, and cut a little off the top of the kingpin, and get much less friction out of the kingpin which should make it work a little better without increasing cost.
