If you run the C1...i don't think you cant brake much....it is bullet proof...if you get the R2 RTR...that it is a bit weak generally speaking. I think the best is to get some parts of the R2 into the C1 ( ie diffs ).

I have been running the C1 for a while and i haven't broke any part...on the R2 i bent hing pins, drive shaft etc...

I hope this help!

so do the C1 parts fit onto the R2?
So the spares i should get are just diffs?

cheers

the you are fine...if you wish to upgrade it get the R2 diffs...but i dont think it is worth...better if you get something new then.

As far as parts, the C1 is very strong and as I said it is very difficult to brake parts...i would suggest to leave it and if you break something you buy..otherwise you end up to buy stuff that u dont need!

If you need cen bits ring CEN new zeland, Chris is a top guy. When i had my i use to buy off him every time! Quick and cheap! Unfortunately i just sold all my cen stuff otherwise i could have help u with some spare!
