I wonder how much it would cost to have a spare set of diffs with different weight oil ready to swap out on race days?

Remember the UK has high import duty and then VAT on top at 20% ... it's an expensive place to buy anything, especially foreign hobby products!

For what it is worth those prices look very reasonable, comparable with AE / Losi prices and a little cheaper than Kyosho / Yokomo / Xray.

so far on my car the things I've broken are the steering rack from repeatedly clipping a pipe coupler at high speed, a rear tower (the carbon piece) when somebody jumped the track and hit me full speed at the end of the straight, and a front shock shaft from a heavy head-on collision.

I think on Ty's car he finally broke the shock towers (plastic part) on his practice car at the Cactus. but these parts though were from the original sample batch we got a year ago and we think that the cold and dry climate of Canada's winters made the parts slightly brittle after sitting all these months. the arm mounts have been replaced after wear from running on an abrasive surface. other than those I don't think anything else needed to be replaced on Ty's car.
Torrence, is there enough material in the mounts to drill and tap for m4 screws? I did that for my old CAT sx, with the m3 screws they would bend and eventually damage the mounts too. On later model of car they fix it by using the m4 screws in the kit.

That would be Tower/GP since they are the exclusive distributor.

If that's the case, you're probably better buying 2 kits for spares and race-day changes.

Isn't some b5 parts going for 10x the costs on eBay due to supply/demand of spares?
