I took the diff part today and i had to install all the 1.3 screws with a L wrench when i was building the kit. I ordered a 1.3 driver and used it today when i was rebuilding diff. Im hoping that the screws weren't tight enough and thats what caused leak. I couldn't get a good feel with the L hex wrench because plastic was new. hopefully the hex driver fixed it

Default Durability

The durability has been awesome for me. I run a 6.5 in mine and have had some tumbles I thought would for sure would have broke something and it didnt. I broke one rear outer ball cup after full speed end of the straight away traction roll into a wall That was all me there. I have had some high speed direct pipe hits and all that happens is the shock caps and sway bar mounts pop off.

Is there any overseas places that carries parts for this car? Tower's site is basically a coming soon advertisement. Car looks killer but VERY hesitant to get this now as parts is always an issue it seems.

I am more worried about shops not carrying parts because nothing breaks.

You still need some parts to run Ty's setup's from what I read.

This car JUST came out, it's so new the kits themselves are difficult to get a hold of. Unless you're pro, you won't benefit much from Ty's collection of parts and setup. You can just buy the car and a few arms and corresponding parts and learn the car as is and upgrade according to what suits your needs/preferences.

All this running out to buy a gazillion upgrades before ever driving a car always baffles me. Unless it's something that's factually week like the 410's servo saver that snaps as soon as it's placed under nominal loads, or the 22's putrid sliderack, try the car as is until you find something that's lacking.

If we start seeing Ty use the exact same setup for many different types of tracks or even between two tracks with the same type of grip I would say run out and buy everything he has. That hasn't happened yet nor do I see that happening. Each track will have a slightly different setup and every driver will like/benefit from a slightly different setup.

I think for me the only "option" parts I see getting are the carbon arm inserts, some extra spacers of various sizes, aluminum shock caps, HB spring set and some pre-cut shock bladders (if they ever come out).

The normal spares needed for any car aren't readily available though.
