    Swaybars will help with the roll issue... Well and tuning the suspension.

    start off with 50w shock fluid. that will help greatly. and then go to sway bars.

    basically nothing at all. but the fact that they are sharing parts with a revo means you can use some of those parts. so maybe bumper mounts?, head guards which are not needed in my opinion, axle carriers, and thats about it lol.

    but you can check out tekno rc as well. they have some parts

    That's no fun lol. I have a summit and a converted 3.3. The erevo chassis slayer with sway bars was way more fun to drive IMO.

    I broke my front bulkhead at the track yesterday.. any suggestions on shock adjustments for better jumping? It.didn't want to balance for nothin. it would nose up or some down. N i wasn't goin in full throttle either..

    One thing you can do is learn how to control the truck off the jump and when it's in the air. coming off the jump if you let off the throttle just before you leave the ramp it will nose down and if you keep the throttle after you leave the ramp it will nose up. A good thing is you can still correct it in the air by hitting the brakes to get it to nose down or giving it throttle and it will bring the nose back up. check some videos on you tube of people jumping or racing and you can see just how much you can control the truck in the air.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    On my E Slayer I have summit shock bodies with the stock 50K and Integy Blue springs (think the are like 25lb or something like that IDK LOL they are old, swapped out a couple different spring sets and these fit best). With a sway bar kit and I dont think it could honestly handle any better.
