    Noob needs help plzzz!!!!!!

    I just got the traxxas slash raptor svt for Christmas. It is a 2wd. What upgrades to the suspension(springs and tires and stuff) are needed to make it a great off road rc. It is my first one so I don't plan on racing however I do plan on upgrading to the Velineon brush less system soon. Thanks guys.

    I would stick to the stock ones and just upgrade as you brake. But if youre jumping, get like big bore shocks.
