clutch springs. Get some extra diff gaskets, and make sure you order some s5 seals for the output shafts on the diffs. It comes with s3, but the s5 are thicker, and less chance of a leak.

Other then that, the normal, clutch shoes, clutch bell, front and rear arms.

The S3 are not for sealing the diff output shafts, those are only the S5 o-rings.

i think he was talking about the thicker o-rings that places like carolinas rc sells that would be better

DO NOT USE THE SMALL O-RINGS when you build the diffs. 2 orings total in a diff. I put new clutch springs every other week, and replace shoes when neccesary.
