Side links! I see guys at our track break them all the time. Lower frt arms and maybe a set of castor blocks in case you strip the screws. Other than that, it's just routine maintenance items like frt springs, shock rebuild kits, diff balls and maybe an extra spur gear. Of the graphite parts, the likely one to break first would be a top or bottom pod plate but I don't see that very often.

Obviously you should have spare bearings (front, rear and diff), shock rebuild kit, front springs (0.20"), the front end plastic parts and that is about it. You should have at least one extra spur gear and spare diff balls (they always seem to disappear when rebuilding the diff.
Thanks for the response AreCee. I am good on gears, diff balls, bearings and front springs. I will order the shock rebuild parts and front end plastics.

Thanks for the response SteveL. Yeah, I figured side links may be a high priority and now you have confirmed it. I will get the shock rebuild kit, lower front arms, castor blocks, springs, upper and lower rear pod graphite pieces as you have suggested. I am good on the diff balls and spur gears.

I will be installing a Futaba S9602. Do not know the Futaba size specs, but you can probably find them on Futaba's site. Another possibility is the Futaba S9650.

I run a 9650 in everything pan car. I've had two of them in 12 scales for about 2 years and haven't ever had a problem with them running about 48 weeks out of the year.

Breaking side links? Wow.

We have a number of new racers that tend to hit the wall at the end of the straight and the links break right at the end where they snap over the pivot ball. It does take a pretty big hit for this though.

8511 lower pod plate
8536 motor mount
8537 left bulkhead
4687 motor mount standoff

4608 diff hub brushless

Just look around the model street, Kwong Wa Street. Around 90% of the rc shops are located there. If you're going by mtr, get out at D2 exit and walk to the end where Kwong Wa hospital is located. Turn left, walk past one set of lights, past the escalators which go up then you'll see an indian food shop with a bb gun shop. Walk inside that tunnel and you'll see the first batch, walk towards the end of the tunnel and keep following right you'll see another 6 or 7 shops, can't remeber.
