The JC body looks too boxy to me. I am just not a fan.

Quick question for you all that have been running this buggy for a short time, what would be some of the must have spares you have all found you have needed?

I would have spare spur gears for any 4wd buggy. Otherwise...the car is pretty tuff. I would normally say front arms, but mine are taking a pounding. You are more likely ti break the front inner hinge pin than an arm. I would get some xrings for the shocks. Just because they are a lot more smooth.

Not sure if I like this new body, it does look boxy. I really like the look of the stock body. I know the three parts makes it hard to paint and there were initial concerns of the durability. But for me, it has held up really well. Maybe others are having a problem. If my stock body goes, I might try the Proline one.

Perfect this was my plan already as I have 3 spurs and front and rear arms for it coming, was just not sure if any of the front steering was an issue or any other small parts.

Thanks for the input

I like the look of the stock body, but I wish it was a 1 piece body.

I've ran the stock body for about 4 months now and the screws are slowly starting to not hold the 3 peices together, I guess that's a good life for a body but I'm sure a one piece body would last longer for sure.

Just got my kit in the mail yesterday, pretty fast considering it came from Canada and was shipped to me Friday afternoon. But anyway, I have an extra spur and couple springs with it but what X rings fits and are recommended? I have the b5 shock caps and avid stand offs coming as well.

Anything else I should order. Seems like there are not a lot of breaking parts.

I used the traxxas blue xrings on mine.

Really disappointed in the jconcepts body. Looks terrible.

I have not tried them. I have heard they do work, but I cant verify. Plus the traxxas ones are half the cost
