    You need 2 install the center differential to use the rear brakes. If you have a revo 3.3 u already have aluminum shocks. I would get the Badlands.

    You don't need one. One of the best mods I've made is the sway bars. They really improve the handling. You might want to look at doing a single servo set up. The two stock steering servos fight each other.

    They don't work. From what I've read they damage the engine.

    You don't want a boost bottle setup.

    It's purpose was to smooth out the vacuum changes when the engine cycles up and down in RPM's, by retaining some vacuum pressure in the bottle. It doesn't actually boost anything. If it is installed incorrectly, it will have the opposite effect, leaving you with less vacuum throughout the RPM range. They have been phased out, as engine designs have improved. It is more important to tune the engine properly, than it is to seek a solution for a problem you may never have.

    On a side note, I have installed them in the past, on 1:1 cars with aggressive camshafts. It is advertised for the same purpose. To smooth out vacuum changes. Eventually, it gets removed because they don't really do anything aside from increasing the vacuum lines throughout the engine compartment.

    To go with a single steering servo, all you have to do is remove one of the servos and the link the connects it to the steering arm. Most people go with the single steering servo on the left side. You can cut off the unused side of the plastic steering arm if you want, or you could upgrade to an aluminum steering arm like this one;

    There is a "Y" harness that connects the steering two servos together. Remove that, and plug the single steering servo into the receiver.
