AWOLSoldier,

I'm not familiar with the Excel C-hubs, it's not an item we stock for the barracuda, sorry about that

Most needed Spare parts and hotups

I've got my R3 on the Track and i'm quite impressed with its performance out of the box. But i have no spare parts right now and i would like to know what should i order for stock? I'm Driving Stock class and im not to bad with driving skills, so im not bashing the car around to much ;-). Same with hotups what makes sence and what is just nice looking. Any Idee?

Thanks

Yeah, it dumped that lot in 15 minutes, thought about fitting the back of an old 1/12th shell to the front of the car to use as a snow plough

then commom sense said best not go out, bearings take a while to clean out and i just cant be bothered with that

I'm not expert, but I have an R3 myself running pretty much stock condition. So far I added up rear sway bar, alum main shaft.
I just got my uncentered ball stud for additional rear toe in, all gears, mid span arms. Still on the waiting list is the alum shaft holder (most important actually, esp for the front), all are functional hops. Never broke anything yet so far.
