What spare parts should I stock up on?

Where do you get the hallow ball ends? Do the TT's steering pop off that easily?

Thanks

Do you have a part number for the trx hallow balls and is it a direct fit?

I used the dubro 4-40's on my Jammin's, never failed all summer. Peeps where using Traxxas ball links or the Dubros. I like the Dubros because they come with the spacer to help eliminate bump steer.

I'd ad rearl lower arms also to this list, mine broke when a dbx hit me sideways while my esc took a break. The front end is very sturdy, hit a few pipes and bad landings/cart wheels without issue.

I went to my local hobby shop (mikes hobby shop carrolton tx) to see if they had gotten any in since they have 12 on order. Ofna had sent out 4 of them and they were already spoken for so i pre ordered 1 and should be in next week since they are only getting in 4 a week. looks like there will be a 1/10th scale truggy class forming at mike's really soon. I saw 1 at the track this weekend running with 4wd buggy's and i was really impressed it ran strong all day inside and after the races he took it outside to the 1/8th scale track. I saw him bringing it back in with a wheel missing i dont know what he broke or how he broke it but i know that 1/8th scale track has some pretty sick jumps. Cant wait to get mine going gonna run a tekin rs pro with a 6.5 or a 5.5 will just have to see which i like more.

Well on a big 8th scale track I can see this. Rutted sections shouldnt
slow it down either.

What kinda bearings does the kit come with?
