Default Kyosho zx-5 fs what breaks?

Hey guys I am purchasing a zx-5 fs for the new racing season and was wondering if anybody could tell me what breaks on the car. I am currently running a zx-5 and the main things that have broken are the shock tower mount on top of the bulkheads. I have replaced this with alloy, can you use the same part on the fs? Or is it much stronger ....Thanks

The amount of breakage any car would get is mainly based on your driving skill. I am not saying your a novice, but someone with less experience might take chances that someone with experience will not. Anything will break on any car at any given time. I went months without breaking anything on my FS. The only thing I have really broken are front arms, hubs. That's about it. As for the shock tower stays, they are much beefier then the standard ZX or SP ones. Plus they sit 1mm lower. You can use the AL ones and just adjust the bottom shock mount out a little to compensate.

Cool thx for that mate that was the main thing I was worried about. Are the aluminium suspension mounts also transferable from the sp to the fs?
