Those tiny E-clips that retain the wheels to the axles are just way
too small to work with, and they’re easily lost. Fortunately, Hot
Racing has a solution. They offer threaded front spindles and CV-type rear driveshafts with threaded axles as well. I ordered the
front spindle kit that also includes tiny aluminum front steering
blocks. The steering blocks will never break, and it’s much more
convenient using locknuts to secure the front wheels. The rear
CV driveshafts have lightweight blue aluminum dogbones and
rugged steel axles, and they operate very smoothly. The axles
have mounting flats that accept stock and aftermarket wheels,
and locknuts secure the wheels to the axles.

I wanted to gain a little power boost and some extra run time,
too, so I picked up a Losi LiPo charger and battery pack. The 2-
cell, 7.4V battery pack is rated at 10C (continuous discharge rate),
but it’s powerful enough to handle momentary bursts of 15 to
20C. The battery fits the stock chassis (and the Hot Racing
graphite chassis) perfectly, so no modifications are necessary to
install it. I like that the battery pack has built-in internal circuit
protection against over- and under-charging and a standard Losi
plug that’s compatible with the stock electronics.
The Losi LiPo charger/battery pack is a great investment because it
boosts performance and provides longer run times. The battery pack has
built-in circuitry that prevents over-charging and over-discharging.
