Since I'm in the UK I keep a few parts around that I'll possibly never need.
The parts that really are handy are small bevel gears, a set of hubs, one pair of suspension arms, steerings knuckles. I have had a diff go bad on me too, although I don't think anyone else here has, but if you want a quick replacement for those rare occasions keep a spare diff ready built.

Thanks man.
I have already listed the possible 'usual' cases.
What about the drive shaft, universals? Any idea?
I will keep a ready spare diff just in case. Thanks again.

which is it, the Racing or Ultimate pack?

The 'Cuda is one of the few cars for which I never needed to buy a lot of spares for. In fact the only spares I carry are 1 set of suspension arms which I have yet to use and a few gears in case a rock gets caught in them. This is one tough car.

I have been running them since the snowbirds last year and they still feel new. That includes carpet and asphalt racing. No problems or bearing failures whatsoever.

hope this helps.

ea
they make a complete set for the R2? You racing oval this weekend? Thanks

OMG, a Dave sighting! How are you Dave? Haven't seen you on here or heard from you in e-mail in a while. How did the Alex Race go (I think that was a couple of weekends ago?) Anywhere we can see results?

Honestly, I'm not sure, they may be the racing ones, because they sure didn't cost much. It included the steering bearings as well.
