Default BD7 Optional parts for carpet and spares

I ordered a BD7 to be run on carpet. What optional parts should I get for a carpet setup and what spare parts should I have in my pit box, we all hate downtime to broken parts so always like to be prepared.

I would make sure you get the graphite parts (handles better on carpet with graphite arms etc) minus the c-hubs as they do not make them in the C-hubs for the BD7 yet. I would make sure I got spare king pin upper and lower (Hats and screws). I would make sure you had hinge pins (carry them never used them). I would always have a spare spur and belts. Rear carrier, Chub, Arms (never broken an arm).

I have replaced
belts--wear
King pins-broken c-hub
C-hub
Rear Carrier--weird hit


I really can't think of much else I have put on the car other than upgrades. But I carry a spare car in parts just in case. Even with A-main carrying Yokomo parts it can sometimes be harder to find the more common parts that can break or the springs. Literally I have every part on me at all times minus aluminum. My next order will be the aluminum, screw kit, and titanium turnbuckles so I can build a second car.

Thumbs up

Well

Picked up a db7 after 10yrs away from Sedans

Very nice car to build

Spent 2 days at our carpet track, getting re-acquainted with rubber tires, and Sedan driving, bounced off everything in sight the first few hours, with no issues to report
No leaks, nothing broken, nothing tweaked

Started with Kit setup + SpecR DCJ's, moved to Carpet setup, minus any option carbon bits
Fun to drive, tons of rear rotation , and easy to drive

Great car, looking forward to many fun days ahead

please could anybody advice a full list of spares and options they would want for this car if money was no object?

Im seeing the information about spares above so

spares
C hubs,
wisbhones-arms
steering blocks
rear hub carriers
hingepins
bearings
belts

options
(for carpet)
graphite arms
graphite steering blocks
(For general)
spec R dcj's
titanium turnbuckles
titanium screws

This is my best attempt at what i need before i get my hands on a car- could anybody expand on this for me? Thanks! could you please state why you would get the things you add if you add something to my list? Remember- If money is no object...

Also which pivot blocks do I need and why, which do the factory guys always use? I have been advised on FF3 pivot block for carpet racing? Thanks guys!

If money was no object, I'd buy 2 of all the option parts and a spare kit.

Dave was the main man @ SRD (Speedtechrc racing division) racing touring cars back in early 2000s. Barracuda I think was the car.
