Yellow minispikes all round for 4wd. I'm not sure staggers would be right on a vintage, and I don't just mean for aesthetic reasons either. They don't have the turn in modern cars do. My RC10 also...

Your batteries will be fine for now, I'd use them till they start to puff up (you'll see) and then replace.
