Default 2.0 buggy help and tips.

hi im about to get a Losi 2.0 buggy and i was wondering what parts should i get as spares and parts the wear over time. i wouldn't mind any set up tips or suggestions on parts to change outta the box because ive heard there are a few. im a very competitive racer and i have a very good idea about set ups and working on my cars. most tracks that i race on are pretty big with medium traction and get bumpy at times. most of the times i run revolvers or crime fighter and bow tie combination. i would really appreciate your help. thank you

get a set of tires that most other use on the track u run at. spare air filter sets. idk if u have the RTR or the kit car. but if u have the RTR, replace ur plastic carb link with a metal 1 off a mach .26. exhaust manifold gaskets. sounds dumb, but cheap and great to have em when u need em. glow plug that is suggested for your motor and basic shocks parts in case u tear an end out. some extra hardware is good too. good luck!

Parts breakage??? On a Losi???? Never heard of it, LOL.

Stuff mostly wears out before breaking. I have seen some break the 4mm rod ends on steering racks. But that's from crashing A LOT. I've read about people breaking the rado tray, I'm assuming from huge jumps or something, IDK.

Basically pay attention to your hinge pins(keep clean), all the plastic rod ends(keep clean, squeeze with pliers if tight), keep clutch in good shape, keep bearings in good shape.
