For the hopups, mostly are RPM stuffs..I'm from the other side of your world, so aluminium hop-ups are difficult to get unless order direct from US..
If you're not jumping it, you probably won't need to replace parts every unless you're smashing into curbs.

If you're not racing, you'll probably only ever adjust the ride height a couple times until you get it set how you like and then never touch it, so threaded bodies are totally overrated for you. The truck comes with different thickness pre-load spacers, so you can definitely adjust it still.

Aluminum parts tend to just make the next part along break, and are generally less durable since they won't bend and bounce back in a crash, they just stay bent.

There is no magic "best setting", it all depends on the surface you're driving on, the tires you're running, springs being used and the shock oil being used.

In general, suspension settings shouldn't be touched unless you know what the adjustment will do and want what it's going to do. If you're happy with how it's driving don't mess with it.

one question, why is the front wheel hubs is thicker than the rear? i can see that the front wheel hubs does not completely fit into the wheels..

Unless you're having issues with the stock parts, the big bore shocks are a waste of money IMO.

As for the wheel hub, do you mean the hex (hexagonal piece on the axles)? They're sized to get the width exactly how they want it. Again, wouldn't mess with it, it's like that by design.

yes the hex piece..then i will get the original size for the aluminium hex hub for front and rear..i understand the rear uses d standard thickness hex hub that most traxxas truck use..they should have made the front arms
