Hey guys just got the Traxxas Raptor for Christmas today. Completely new to RC but so far i love it. Ive kind of searched around and saw a million different upgrades for these things.

With that being said can someone direct me towards the proper upgrades to make it more reliable first? Later on i definitely want to make it faster and i think with that i will need a new motor? Brushless i think? As well as different batteries.

Completely new to this like i said so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Justin
