Default Losi 8ight-E Extra Parts

Hey guys I am brand new to 1/8 scale buggy and I would like to pick up some extra parts for my new 8ight-E. I just want to be sure that I have what I need in the event that somthing would break at the track. Please let me know what you guys would suggest I put in my 8ight-E spare parts box. I know you can never have it all but I am sure there have to be things that break more often than others. The common stuff is what I am looking for. Part numbers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all of your help.

It comes with an assortment of springs, sway bars, and shock pistons. Those will pretty much get the handling where you want it, short of a diff fluid change. The car is pretty tough, but you can't go wrong keeping a set of spare suspension arms, and a variety of pinion gears. Also, the Kyosho nylon spur gear is a popular mod, makes the car allot more quiet. There's one at my track, and the difference is night and day!

It's a pretty durable car, you aren't likely to brake anything. Just bring the stuff you need to dial it to your situation.

I have had my brushless 8ight since April and only parts I have broke is a antenna tube & wing (landing on the roof to much when I 1st got it) a shock shaft and hinge pin brace (which was also my fault) Would recommend you to get a aluminum servo horn and maybe some different shock oil, diff oil and pinions.

The Losi guy at my track set my car up with a rear c v drive shaft from the 2.0 version when mine came out due to chassis flex.
It's a tad longer and fits on the 1.0 version.
Also told me that the blue plugs have less voltage drop than Deans.
