Most local hobby shops have an OS book with part #'s that you can look though. I would suggest that. Piston and sleeve and bearings should top your list. Also some new o-rings in the cars is also a good idea.

Tower hobbies piston and sleeve

What's wrong with your piston and sleeve? You can get them resized if they aren't scratched up or broken. Google search rayaracing and shoot him an email. $23 bux will get it done and shipped back to you within a week. I've done a few of them and they are like new or better than new.

Best tips are when reassembling use orange sensorsafe rtv from auto parts store to seal it up. Seal the backplate, thin bead under the carb, and also around the fuel nipple where the fuel line hooks up to the highspeed needle.
