I agree with Howard. I have never broken a chassis, but as I have read, it is possible . You also don't seem to readily break chassis braces, bumpers, shock towers, ect very much. I would just buy a couple sets of front and rear suspension arms, some hinge pins, mabey a set of all of the bearing carriers (one set comes with bearing carriers for all four courners of the car), and mabey a couple other extra parts. But I don't think buying a full kit is nessary, because you brake some parts frequently, and some parts you never even brake. Just my 2 cents

I've only broken one rear suspension arms EVER even without the nerf sidewings. I was braking front suspension arms a lot so I bough an RPM front bumper and haven't broken yet .

Front A Arms break - you can greatly reduce it with a BRP bumper.
Steering blocks strip very easily. Relace with XXXS steering blocks they last way longer. Thats about it on mine.

yes, if you can't drive a tight line without hitting the walls or anything else drive in teh middle of the track. That is your best way to prevent breakages...
