Any input is appreciated!!

Serpent fits my xray quite nicely, so it's probably worth a shot.

Ed and Kevin. We should have the correct ones back in stock. I used a 96 from our stock back at the birds and think we have more in our race inventory.

Hi Guys, me&a friend of mine are going to use VBC wildfire d06 in our country. Our distrubutor wants what we want to order as a spare part for the first shipment, and I want your help about what I would need for a nationals in carpet surface full of wooden boards.

What parts are likely to break and need replacement often?
IS plastic spool in front durable for modified racing?

What is the length of the standart Dual Joint drive shafts and rear CVDs? I see that there are 49mm optionals and wanted to know the stock length.

regards

The standard length of the dual joint drive shafts is 50.5mm.

For modified racing, I would pick up the upgraded aluminum spool shaft.

As far as replacement parts, I'd pick up the bumper pack, body posts, arms, C-hubs, steering swivel tubes, steering blocks and rear hubs.

Default Source for m3x9

Anyone know of a source for the m3x9 button head screws that go on the underside of the steering knuckles/c-hubs?

C hubs, steering blocks, front spool outdrive and maybe front/rear belts.
Also you may need some 5x0.2mm shims/washers to eliminate sloppy on steering poles and spur gear drive.
Overall, the car is quite strong. not too much spare parts needed.
you can go for more optional parts.

The only thing I have broken on the car is a rear axle and the front bumper foam. I installed the hard foam bumper and it is HARD.
The rear axle broke when I got T-boned by another car right on the rear wheel.
