Default Spares

What spares are recommended to keep in the spars box?

Where is the best place to buy spares online?

What about in Australia? Who do you find the cheapest and has stock?

Thanks

Depends on the person, i race stock on a track made out of pipes and go through heaps of rear uprights and hardly anything else. But always have a front and rear arms, front hubs, rear uprights, different size screws/washers and belts.

Anything else and ill just not race for the rest of the day

I get it from a main, i have had many orders come within 7 days. Not the cheapest prices, but great prices on shipping.

Drew E, question for you. Did you guys try the new quick roll center bits at Reedy? I don't see them used on your setup sheet.

Quoted for truth. Was going around the track yesterday... BARELY taped the pipes going about... 5mph, driving virtually parallel to the pipes, and had an upright split right in half. There is CERTAINLY an engineering issue with the rear uprights.

Default LRP vs. Novak

Fellas... trying to score me a LRP 3.0T or Novak Ballistic 3.5T for sh*ts and giggles...currently have SS10.5T and think it's a good motor running off of LRP TC Sphere. Are LRP motors better in quality or anything else for that matter than Novak's?

kinda leaning towards LRP to try out...

note: I don't think the TC Sphere can support a 3.0T motor, or can it? site says "over 3.0T" <~ so, 3.5T and up only?? if so, might spring for the SXX

So had a driveshaft fail over the weekend... in pricing replacements, I couldn't believe how expensive they are!! (even more expensive than the ECS upgrades)

(2) 52mm steel drive shaft = $46
(2) Drive Shaft Coupling = $14
(2) Lightweight Drive Axles = $40
shipping/handling = $10

Total = $110

So to replace the front drive shafts of a T2 car is almost 1/4 the price of an ENITIRE new car? Are the spare part prices from other manufacturer's this bloated compared to the price of the car, or is it only Xray?

Nope, just Xray. Don't let this discourage you, the cars are tough, and are tougher than most others out there.

I highly suggest the optional Hard Front Bumper, Part # 301223 for about $12.00, and the Optional Wide Impact Absorbing Front Bumper, Part # 301203 for about $7.00. These two parts will make the front end practically indestructible by protecting the front arms, cvd's, c-hubs, and steering blocks from impact.

When you get good enough to avoid impacts for the majority of the race, you can slowly revert back to the smaller and lighter parts for a little more speed and that slight competitive edge.
