    Which Traxxas brand upgrade parts should I buy?

    The LHS by me will be having a 40% off sale on some items and all of the "in stock" traxxas parts are included. They don't have much (mainly a plane/helicopter shop) but they do have some stuff...but it's only traxxas branded parts (no rpm or losi parts). I'm still a complete noob concering my truck (it's the standard slash - not the ultimate) so I figured while stuff is on sale I could buy some good upgrade parts.

    Here is what is listed on Traxxas website as "upgrades" for my slash..are any of these worth it?
    Also, are there any Traxxas spring kits I could buy that aren't necessarily for the slash but would fit? I'm a rough terrain basher by the way...

    5862 big bore shock set
    6832x aluminum caster blocks
    6814 center differential
    6837x aluminum steering blocks
    6838x aluminum rear shock tower
    6839x aluminum front shock tower
    1952x stub axle carriers
    4760 aluminum shocks long
    4761 aluminum shocks xlong


    thanks!!

    What's the difference between these:
    5862 – big bore shock set (this contains 4 shocks)
    and these:
    4760 – aluminum shocks long (is this front? - contains 2 shocks)
    4761 – aluminum shocks xlong (is this rear? - contains 2 shocks)

    the 5862 is better than other 2. 5862 has a bigger bore (holds more oil and bigger piston) comes with ti-ni shafts

    center diff is not really for bashing, dont get the shock towers. the rest are popular upgrades

    like broken slash 4x4 said, go with rpm shock towers. And get either RPM body posts or a ton of traxxas ones, cause yo will go through them if you bash ahard like i do
