Default Top Ten Must Have Parts

I work at a hobby shop and we are expanding the store. As part of the expansion, we will be putting in a dirt track on site. We want to make sure we have the parts that everyone needs.

Thats where I need your guys help. If you would, please list which off road buggy, truggy, etc. that you have, and then list the top ten parts for that vehicle that a hobby shop you race at must have in stock.

Well, the biggest must haves are the things that everyone uses.

Fuel/fuel bottles
Glow plugs
Tires/wheels
bodies/paint
glow plug ignitors
starter boxes
GOOD servos
fasteners (nuts, bolts, screws, washers)
Good tools
Pipes/seals/springs
And then worry about vehicle specific stuff
