A-arms, and shock towers, didn't want to break an a-arm, and I broke a shock tower inhalf.

I just got RPM parts, but had to put the stock front one back in, as the screw kept backing out of the RPM part.

unless you drive around alot of curbs buy about 3 packages of the rear hub carriers, part number 3752. In 2 seasons of racing these are the only parts to break (minus one a arm) out of about 5 - 15 cars weekly, give or take

+1 on the hub carriers. If you are bashing, they make aluminum and RPM makes some. That is the one bummer part about the stock class. Luckily they are cheap and only take a couple minutes to replace.

So far the only part I've broken is the front caster block.

In a winter's worth of racing I've broken:

1 front control arm
1 rear hub
1 rear stub axle
front shock cap popped off several times

I keep a spare set of control arms, rear hubs, and a spur.

Itís good to have extra steering blocks and rear axle carriers they break really easy I have also broke a front shock tower. Save your self some time and replace your shock caps with aluminum ones now because they will either break or pop off
