Day 1: Lower Rear A Arm
Day 2: Steering block and carrier
Day 3: Order brand new racer kit to part out
Day 4: Nothing breaks
Day 5: Question to self: Should I have bought a whole other car to part out?
Day 6: TBD

Sure thing. I don't expect a lot more breakages since I quit running the car like my old rc10gt.

Great choice. Wish I had bought that instead. Oh well, I'll just replace with FT parts as I destroy the current parts.

No idea what parts break commonly, but I do know that if you run hard and break, say most of the front and rear suspension parts at some point, it seems worth it to me to buy 2 cars: one to use and one to part.

Order the Team Losi XXX-S front steering blocks. They will npt strip out the screws like the AE ones. This is a big problem, for me at leats. I used to have to replace the knuckles at least once a month, and now, I dont have to at all.

Order some A-Arms, caster blocks, hinge pins, and the plastic arm mounts. Thats about all I ever break. Also, order an RPM wide front bumper; that will save you a lot of parts.

Yes I have even broken a chassis(someone turned a radio on in the pits,8 wind, down the straight away..ka boom,even broke my speed control)but i think that would have broken any car.

seems a little silly to buy two cars why not buy one car and with the money you would use on the second car buy arms hinge pins suspension blocks tunning springs ect. be better off in the long run
