Default What parts break on the 777 SP2?

I just got an SP2 and I was wondering what are the most common parts that break on these cars. I am planning on going to a few out of town races and dont want to be left stranded with a broken car and no spares. Thanks.

Check the play in the diffs and shim them in necessary after they have been broken in.

You may wish to have a spare set of front arms in case you have a head on collision. Of course carry spare screws. You may need a new wing if you flip over a lot. Maybe some spare clutch bearings, shoes and springs.

That about covers it. Of course you can carry a full kit just to be sure.

Steering knuckles

The stock ones are cast aluminum, and don't necessarilly break, but rather the steering pin will pull out and strip the threads. If you can afford it, get the King Hedz aftermarket ones and keep the stockers for spares.
