Default Spare Parts

for spare parts.. i say pick up some c-hubs..and some kingpin screws for the bottoms. or the flanges and the proper screw length.

thats about allyou'll need. ive broken two c-hubs but that was going full speed into a 4" diameter PVC pipe.

its nearly impossible to damage a gear (diff or bevel).. you can always pluck out the pebble.. spur gears.. i run 48 pitch so i never have to worry.

the car is ROCK SOLID. so breaking is never usually a problem. the R2/R3 is as tough as the tamiya cars.

hop ups.. get the alum. shaft holders.. Ti axles too! i have in mine. lots of weight savings.

Hi Lotus111

The car Is unbreakable.I've never seen such good material as the cuda.The wishbones are very tough.I seen racers with modified motors bashing it with no breakage and still continue the races.
