What parts are breaking? I'd change out all the hinge pin mounts to king headz units. Other than that, there's not much more to do. It's a pretty good truggy for a starter, in fact I'm just finishing up the rebuild of my old LSP for my g/f's son to race this weekend.

I went to the track thinking I was set and broke. Definate hinge pin set, replacement or upgrade, front and rear. Glowlugs...fuel...tools...I'm not really sure what you're looking for. Does anyone at your local track run the same truggy? Thats the best way to get what your looking for...good luck!

Thanks. But i didnt mean fuel and those types of things. Like some truggy's are not meant to race out of the box. Thats what i mean by this. I just want to know if anyone has brought there RTR HB LSP 2 to the track right out of the box and found that they needed to upgrade a few things.

Also, if you have CV style drive shafts, do your self a favor and pick up some Losi LST drive shafts. They are chrome in color, but fit your LSP while being alot cheaper than buying the whole shaft. You should be able to pick up a pair of the lost LST shafts for a little over 10 bucks a pair.
