Hello all,

Im getting a dbxl and understand that it needs upgrades right out of the box, however im looking for advice on an aftermarket chassis?

My first upgrades will be:
Chassis
Servos/radio
Engine (possibly)
Chassis Braces

Any otheres worth doing?

Thanks in advance.

If you're looking to do all that, it might be worth looking at a 5ive instead.....

The shocks are a bit weak, so at least change the springs for some DDM HD Springs to improve the rebound.
If you do change the engine for anything too powerful, you will need to upgrade most of the drive train too as it will just break!

Important bit - make sure you add a kill switch to your shopping list too.

I expect the members here will have plenty to add too.

Enjoy :)

Cheers @djvrs,

I mainly just like the look of the DBXL tbh,

Defo will be adding a kill switch and will most likely be chassis and servos to start but im hoping to upgrade as i go :)

Kill switch is one of the first things you should get.

Outerwears or some other kind of protection.

I agree with djvrs...too big an engine may start breaking things in the drivetrain.

A tuned pipe will really wake the stock motor up.

Other than that....I say upgrade as you go.
