Bandit/Rustler Spare Parts Kit
If you had to put together a set/kit of spare parts for a Rustler or a Bandit, what items would you definitely include? Currently, Im in Iraq, and dont have access to a hobby store to buy whatever I happen to need when the moment strikes. So Im looking to try and find what kinda items are must haves or I should have on hand just in case so when stuff does break on my beautiful new Bandit, I dont have to let my R/C car sit on the shelf in my office for a week or two before having the parts to fix it.
So far, I almost stripped out my spur gear but I caught it before it was a problem and fixed that. Dont think I will have to worry much about it, its adjusted correctly now. My big problem so far is the right rear tire (as youre looking from the front). The nut wont stay on, it loosens itself. Its come off three times now and while I havent lost anything, the one part I did I could make another, and I found a temporary replacement for the washer. Its not perfect but it will do the job. I know that side is getting more resistance than the other and I hope that doesnt cause any long term bigger problems...but for now it will do. The only fix I found for the nut though was to use loc-tite (basically a glue to hold bolts and nuts in place). Anyone else had this problem, and if so what was your fix?
Thank you for your time, I did get a lil off topic but I feel it is all related and Im eager to hear your input. I already have A-arms front and rear, shock rebuild kits, and a few other suspension related parts on order and about to order the replacement parts for the wheel as well. But thats all so far.
