Default GOT A REVO!!!

So I finally got a Revo. I got it used though because it was a great price, $200. It needs the tranny fixed (first gear is busted), but I have that taken care of because my dad's friend from work says he'll fix it at no charge. I want him to do the FOC too, but I'll talk to him later. I am buying a failsafe from my friend who just got Spektrum, and since the failsafe and Spektrum aren't compatible he offered to sell it to me. Besides that upgrade, what do you guys recommend I get ASAP? I am already thinking of getting RPM A-Arms, RPM bumpers, and new turnbuckles and pushrods. What else should I get? Thanks for any advice.

I have the RPM arms. They are a lot beefier than the stock ones. Honestly, if I were you I would install the FOC, get a failsafe and drive it. You may find something else when you start driving it, it happens.

So RPM A-Arms aren't necessary ASAP?

The stock ones lasted me 4 months or so before I broke one. It broke from a bad landing off a jump. Then I upgraded to RPM arms all around.
