    I'd start with a THS exhaust, and 20/40 revo gearing.

    Probably cheapest + best upgrades.

    Depends on how well you tune it. Most people can, even with the stock pipe. I always had trouble doing wheelies, but that's because I was running stock tires (Anacondas are pretty terrible). After swapping out the tires, I couldn't stop doing wheelies.

    Where about in Australia are you? Perth here

    Getting parts should be a little easier than getting them here. I generally just grab my parts from eBay.

    I would also suggest upgrading your tires depending on where you're running your vehicle.

    They're fantastic

    Just remember, the front ones aren't hex, so you either need to do the mod, or order a different set if you want a matching set.

    I've just ordered all the parts.

    Honestly, the only mod I haven't done to my vehicle now is extended chassis + big block. I have too much power as it is

    I own badlands and the Talons you shared a link to, and i must say i hate the talons. They are complete garbage compared to using the badlands.

    Every offroad surface i've ran on badlands have performed far beyond the talons. I havent tried them on the road because i can just tell the badlands will wear down fast. But the talons can perform on any surface but they do spin out all the time because they dont get GREAT traction.
    I wanted to get rid of my jato because i could barely go straight offroad with the talons but after getting badlands or a better offroad tire i changed my mind and kept my jato.
