Anything else I should look at maybe? Hinge pins? Shock shafts?
Maybe add a set of shock caps, they are in a set with damper plastics or something, then you probably have parts forever, thing is a tank

Yes. Hinge pings and shock shafts. Also a set of the ball cups ends for the front and rear camber links. These take a lot of stress because everything else is so strong. I would skip the rear arms and double up on extra spur gears, diff gaskets, front spindles, and rear hubs. The hubs mainly because most of use the inside hole closest to the edge and it could break while the camber link ball cup cracks in half under extremely hard crash against a wall. This car is extremely tough so I don't think you will need these but without having a LHS supply I would stock up just in case.

Ok, rear arms are gone and I've found the rear hubs. More spur gears are in.

Are these the front spindles you're talking about?

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXEGEG&P=7

Do you have part numbers for the ball cup ends, front and rear camber links?

I have front shock shafts only, it seems the front mainly break, or are rears a good idea too?

1. ball cup set 112724
2. sway bar cups 1127275
3. rear hub 112770

[QUOTE=Genebaby;13328018]Ok, rear arms are gone and I've found the rear hubs. More spur gears are in.

You may also want to order the steering bellcrank in case you don't run a servo saver.

Hot Bodies Steering Crank Set D413 112764 part number

This is not the right part I was thinking. I would use this one because it has the carbon fiber L bracket that could break.

112769 Plastic front spindle
112768 Carbon fiber steering arm

I think you have to buy the whole sway bar kit to get those. I wonder if you can use the HPI kit below and just shave off the ball end with a dremel. Much cheaper option that is in stock.

A fellow racer who got the d413 when I got mine has now broken 2 sets of shock ends. Anyone else having any issues? The bottom is just blowing out of the end on a medium sized jump. Nothing I would consider big or hard landing. I guess maybe hitting something on previous laps may be weakening them then they are letting go. Just a heads up. Keep an eye on yours.
