Plus:
upper arms (I've never broken a lower without breaking the upper)
shock rebuild kit (for those annoying shock caps)
body posts
front springs
rear axle bearings

Add front and rear axle shims, kingpin shims and e-clips because you lose them easily.
Rear height adjusters, a good wall tap can break those.

Yes, it should work with any modern 12th scale wheels

My advise would be to start reading all the 12th scale forums from page 1. There's alot of good info from basic to hitec. Red Bull Fixx & Infinate12th have great info to share. I am fairly new 6 months getting back into the hobby from 25 years and have learned a lot here. Thanks to all who post! BTW Red Bull you have to make your way back to Norcal soon so you can give me a little 1 on 1 help tunning my 12r5. We all have "agreed" to run 13.5 ramped now to make it a little more even. I gave up on my CRC WGT and got a used 10r5 and loved it. Starting to get better and not breaking #@&* anymore.

I was talking about Norcal and yes they do have 12th scalers out here to. We also are getting more WGT guys now which is cool. The big deal with 12th scalers was getting everyone to decide on which motor to run. There was a division of mod vs 17.5 and now I hope we got it straight with all of us running 13.5 ramped. Theres not enough of us to run both classes. Norcals schedual looks like off road for the next few weeks, but maybe they will run a dual program on and off road. Somtimes they do that and you just have to keep checking the schedual. One of these days when I get better I do want to try other tracks out, but I am pretty lucky though.

$38 for all the parts, minus bearings. pretty awesome. wish touring cars were that cheap.

i for one am glad its not all mod class. would be very unfriendly for beginners and there would always been a handful of fast guys winning every race.
most escs will have a stock mode though.
if you get one of the newer ones im sure you can run it in any class you want with the right setting, just double check the roar approved list before buying.

of course, depends how serious the racers in your area are about that. not all clubs are roar to the letter.
