Upgrades for the SCX10, XR10 and RTC

We receive numerous questions from people asking what option parts they should upgrade to first. Half the fun of this hobby, to me, is wrenching and upgrading components. But, it can be tough to sort through information to see what upgrades are necessary. Some R/C upgrades in general are purely for looks, some are for better performance and a lot are for improved durability. Performance and durability are the two biggest reasons I upgrade my personal R/C’s, and I know there are a lot of people out there that have the same approach I do. So, I decided to come up with an upgrade list for each of our vehicles in order from most important to least important from my vantage point.
