The H7 is a pretty beefy buggy. It is heavy and just seems to hold up to the abuse I put mine through. As for spares, keep shock shafts on hand. Make sure you get the CNC front carriers for reliability and some good servos. All in all the H7, although dated, was a great machine to learn to drive on. Diff oils in the 5-3-1 (front-center-rear) really make the car handle well. Going as lite as 3 on the front took care of some corner push but was a driver preference.

I still have my PCR pro edition H7. Although it is retired and in pieces, it is complete with both the PBS and Kingpin suspensions for the front

Depends on what battery holder that H7 has installed on whether or not you use a hump pack or flatpack. Either way if you are just starting out with racing and bashing then a good NiMH battery will work just fine. Unless you are familiar with LiPO then I would stay away from them. Yes they have gotten safer but they do require special servos or a voltage regulation of some sort on the car itself. Besides unless you are doing marathon runs of 45 minutes or longer, the non-LiPO batteries will be just fine.

In my current car I am running LiFe batteries. They are not as flamable as LiPO and last a little bit longer than the NiMH that are available.

That hyper 7 black will take a beating! the .28 that comes in it gets it moving nicely. Only thing i've broken yet is stock steering servo and a hinge pin. pretty solid buggy but if you race I think there are better options (i only bash so)
