Well I had a nice long reply but it went all spastic on me so, in short...

Fix all its issues (many), then maybe get some X-joint rear arms, QT fronts, Maxis (if i can find some), Heim joint the A-frame ball joint, Bilstein 7100 12" shocks and yeah usual stuff really.

I think the front coils are too hard as while the front moves a little, its the back end doing all the work. I think with softer front coils it would be alot more capable :)

you wont get much more with softer coils.
the main problem is the radius arms where they mount the chassis.
the bushes reach there limit way too quickly and the standard radius arms just dont allow for flex.
im looking at going an x-link for mine down the track. :D
