you'll be needing glue for your tires to the wheels. and grease for various areas in the build like diffs and shocks and a few other spots maybe. the glus is CA superglue. like losi or proline glue. and the grease you will want a thin,waterproof, beraring grease. you can buy that from a parts store if you like alot for more for the same cost as a grease from a rc company. also when you build your filter use that same grease on the ends of the filter where it contacts the solid plastic ends, this will prevent dirt from entering your motor form under the filter. there is post with some pics that explains that part very well in the racing forum under the phoenixazracers thread.

actually, the instruction manual is telling me to use rubber glue to put together the brake pads. is it okay to use the proline glue?

it is one of those things i have been since my Dad taught me how to clean and maintain my filters on my bikes. as he said I'm not riding so im not working on it, but Dad im 8 yrs old. "so you have to learn sometime." it wasnt anything i ever really thought about telling anyone i just did it. then one of local guys posted that on our local forum and i thought wow what great advice for everyone. i hope you went to the thread and checked out the pics and the full explaination. in any case no problem for anyone it helps out.
