Thanks in advance
Hey Beta Bob, in my opinion you should get the following just in case:
-Set of belts
-Extra set of spurs
With this you should really be alright. I have yet to strip a spur. Belts last alot of runtime if taken like they should (keep the pulleys clean). Since I bought this car, I have yet to break a pulley on the diff, spool or either internal pulley.
I have never broken a front/rear shock tower, and the updated rear end is much much stronger so youll break the rear arm before this.
If you do crash alot and you anticipate your crashes will be catastrophic, just then I would suggest to carry an extra set of CVDs.
Hope this helps.
