sorry LOL

it doesnt need much, i would say the new springs sets red and blue,alum servo horn,rear alum hubs .....and pinions for gearing depending on Motor/ESC you run


as for spare's only thing I broke was a rear body mount and im including my whole summer running the Nitro version..I did bend the heck out of a front drive shaft but lets just say totally my fault becase it should of broke my whole front end LOL it was quite basher like

build tips: Locktite the inner link lock nuts that connect to the shock tower, scuff up the motor mount cam and inside the mount with sand paper a little helps hold the motor in place you cant see the inside of it anyhow and a smooth anodized finish is slick (old TC trick)
and i added 2.5 cap head screws to the center diff mount (carbon fiber X) so i could locktite those screws and get them out without stripping them

if you want more front droop i used longer shock ends(only adds 5-7mm) instead of optional shafts that some have mentioned so your not ramming the piston up into the bladder..with still plently of up-travel on front arm/shock
http://www.nitrohouse.com/Plastic-Sh...-4_p_8146.html but most of European tracks i dont think its a must, but it really helps on U.S. style tracks in my opinion

good part is the rest of the parts tree is the same as the X3
