Default what do i need to install spyder mod?

I have the spyder mod I ordered when I ordered my savage.
What do i need to isntall it? Some 1k and 3k OFNA Diff Oil? Or anything else?
And how are the Hot Bodies Padlock tires?

And what would you recommend is a good battery charger? TO charge the Hump Pack?
I currently have this one- http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXJC34&P=ML

Im about ready to go buy my savage SS this weekend. I think for a charger, I am going to go with the Super Brain 959 from MRC. Seems to be the right dollar-to-feature ratio for me (and a lot of others).

that charger will work, but depending upon your connections, you may have to make your self a mod cable that goes from the 7.2 volt battery style to the red standard reciever plug in. it all depends on your cables and connectors.
