Hello everyone, looking forward to hearing more about this interesting 4wd. Any specific parts anyone would recommend to have on hand as a backup outside of the norm? If I pull the trigger, I'd obviously grab some arms and shock towers, but anything else?

Just got done changing up my rear shock setup... Went back to the CRP race shock bladders, 1.7mm 2 hole pistons, 32.5w oil and 2mm shock limiters inside..

This car is pretty nasty as in killer out of the box. I'd recommend arms and maybe a spur or 2 just to have if needed. So far the car is very durable and with all the factory aluminum you should be in great shape. Hope this helps

Hey Scott my name is Chris and I am in the process of building the S10BS V4 CRP Race Edition. The build is going well and if I have a question Rick has been more than happy to answer my questions quickly. Like others may be telling you, pick up arms, spur gear and being a team kit you will need to have your own choice of shock oil and diff fluid. Be sure to pick up some black grease for diffs and a bottle of thread lock for the alum pcs. The way the packing is done is super cool and keeps everything separated till you are ready to use or build that section. The parts are a nice fit and may require some prepping depending on how you build a kit. The team seems to work together to help bring the best setups. The car is easy to drive and jumps perfect leaving you time to make air adjustments if needed. If you are looking to BE DIFFERENT this is a awesome kit. I am happy I made the change to Caster Racing and like I said Rick is hands on and very easy to work with. Have any specific questions just ask.

Hey scott, you will love the car and find it to be very durable . The only parts that are worth having in my opinion are the carbon towers , make sure to get the one with the updated rear wing mount, modded rpm arms from crpplus.com they will not break, some extra hub bearings, spur gears, screws for the gear diffs they are small so might as well have some extras, ball studs and ball cups, hinge pins, suspension mount inserts and finally some spare diff gears (the bevel gears inside, never had a failure but good to have a spare set). The car is practically bullet proof once the rpm arms are fitted. The stock arms are great but ive had some snap in very cold weather .
