Might be quicker, but I think motor protection is required, especially when running indoors. Probably wont be to had to add a carbon plate there.

Here's a idea... DON'T HIT ANYTHING!

I'll be back soon FJ. Save me a spot.

It isn't you hitting something, its someone hitting you -- and that happens more indoors. Martin and I got peeled like crazy at the Halloween Classic in the A.

U better come back to the track soon, we already had to find a fill-in. His name is Schreff-tino -- the Latin Schreff... unfortunately more schreff-like in size/scale than driving skills

What parts should I order to keep as spares? My LHS doesn't have any parts, so I order from TOP USA.

I have not broken anything, though i have tried

I have seen c hubs and rear hub carriers go though.

If your using aluminium drive shafts all round either replace them with steel ones or keep a few handy as they WILL chew out quite fast (Particularly in mod)

Belts are a favourite..

I was comparing the photn chassis with the 416x tamiya lipo, and tamiya's chassis is alot narrower. Have'nt check how much though.

I think TOP is working on a narrower version of the chassis too. It would be nice to have one and still have a motor gaurd and lipo holder work.

The only thing I have ever broken was the suspension mounts and the plastic bell crank. I put the aluminum bell crank on and haven't had any problems with that. Other than those two items, just normal maintenance items.

The plastic steering knuckles seem to be a problem for me right now. Didn't break any at the IIC this year but, I've broken 4 in the last week at our club track (chicane). Obviously, I ordered aluminum last week. I also tore the link screw out of a plastic rear upright (chicane again), should have had a set screw in the unused hole...my bad.
