Front arms.. spindles.. well just have a spare for everything in the front and you'll be fine. I would also carry a spare steering rack. If you drive it smoothly it won't break often, these trucks do NOT like contact of any kind though, most breaks will occur if you run into a pipe, wall, or another car.

I would also recommend having some spare steering parts too.

The GT2 front amrs and steering knuckles/axles are worth looking into because they are direct bolt on parts which improve durability.

"Me taking AE assembly manual and listing part that I did have to change in 2 years"

Wear and crash include ... (i did not count ball diff but mine is seriously fubar)

- the small foam for balls end 6272
- Steering parts 9581, 9580
- Ball ends 6273 (now they have hex right inside the ball) they tend to brake right in the middle; crash or not, I guess there is a lot of stress on these ones
- others 7230 (lazy to translate my manual is in french but serial number should be the same anyway)
- screw that hold front shock 7413
- bumper front 9562
- 9587
- 9645
- 9570 (crack because 1/8 buggy hit my in the back in the end of the straight ... asshole)
-9564 or 9565 (plastic wear and ball end uncrew after time)
- 6273
- Rear shock tower 7444(Pro-tip, better land on the wheel)
- A full truck of Front A-arms
- ball bearing 3977
- shock rebuild kit
- 6472
- 9238 I always loose that tiny pice of foam

I broke a ball stud just taking my T4 outta the closet...talked to a local racer who said to skip the black studs and get the titanium ball studs.
