Great Truggy, a must have spare is Steering Block Bushings - RC8,RC8E
[ASC89029, rear hubs, rear hub spacers (red/blue). Overall truck won't need much. Also standard clutch parts, springs bearings,shoes,extra clutchbell. One easy mod is running a Jconcepts wing mounted fully forward about 1/2" behind rear shocks (will help overall handling).

Some guys Cary a full truck as a backup or to take parts off of. I keep just about a full kit in new parts in my pit box. That's just how I liketo do it. Then I always have what i need and what the guy next tk me needs.

A must is the rear hubs if you stay with the plastic one. If you have the money get the factory team aluminum rear hubs. That's the only think I've broken, other an bent cvds LOL

Just got home from running mine for the 1st time today. I like the truck, and it seems to suit me pretty well. I just need to put a little more wheel time on it before the AMS.
Some of the spare parts I have ordered are shock shafts, arms, the bushings and bolts that go into the top and bottom of the steering knuckle, frt and rear cvd's ( these tend to bend easily on my buddies truck), and some inner wheel bearings. These are a funky size, so I ordered a tube of Avids for them.
I also have some carry-over parts from my RC8B spares like the plastic hub carriers front and rear.
