Here goes - cooling head, yes, anything to fool the motor into thinkin' it's runnin cooler. Rollbar, swaybars, no, it's wieght n' nothing more. If you dont need it, take out reverse, less wieght. For dirt, proline bowtie tires; proline roadrage for (dry)street; and lighter rims if possible. Camber, 0-1 degree in frt, 3-4 degree in rr; Toe-in, 0-1 degree in frt, 2-3 degree in rr (these measurements are more for dirt). Piggyback shocks, no, waste of money, if you find set-up pushes into turns, stiffen up rr shocks with springs only, but dont do this immediately. Don't add spring spacers or heavier shock oil, keep suspension softer. Bodies, anything you like; hard corner designed bodies (ie:hummer, jeep) dont reflex well, if at all, and will tend to break n' crack sooner, rounded corner styles tend to flex in and out easier n' last longer (ie: proline crowd-pleazer). Good luck, will try to get more info later.
