I dont disagree it's a fine line. You never want to be at the track without a spare but at the same time you dont want to overspend on spares. I usually draw the line at suspension parts to start and any small/unique screws or shims that could be easily lost when working on a car. Then I see what happens. If something does break or wear out then I will usually buy 2 of those just to be safe.

The kit will come with clamping wheel hubs (hexes) like Josh stated.

Spare parts I would recommend are the same as I would for any touring car:

TC-PMES01 F & R Suspension Arm ( each 1pc )
TC-PMFS01 Castor Block - 4
TC-PMGS01 Steering Block & Rear Hub Carrier ( each 1pc )
TC-PMK104 Spool Outdrive ( 4pcs)

Optional Parts I would recommend are:

TC-PSB014 1.4mm Stabilizer Bar ( 2pcs )
TC-PSB016 1.6mm Stabilizer Bar ( 2pcs )

Here is a list of springs we make for rubber. 306 and 344 come standard with the kit.

PS-TR15550 Shock Spring (14 x 1.5 x 5.50) 393gf/mm , 22.0lb/in
PS-TR15575 Shock Spring (14 x 1.5 x 5.75) 367gf/mm , 20.5lb/in

Am I correct in assuming the listed spare suspension parts etc. are for the rubber chassis and the springs are packaged per pair? When I spoke with Michael, he said something about making up a spare parts and option part package. Are you still contemplating that?

They are more of a wear item, rather than something you'd break like suspension components. The photon should be pretty good on its drivetrain with the oversized pulleys but they'll still wear out eventually, and you don't want to be without a spare when they start getting marginal

someone wants their car to be all matchy matchy. I have considered this as well, my LRP gear looks great in the Tamiya but it's going to clash horribly with the TOP. I've also thought about getting all the parts stripped and anodized blue, but there seems to be A LOT of them

Yes working on it....sorry been so busy. You should also try Josh's setup.

Am I correct in assuming the listed spare suspension parts etc. are for the rubber chassis and the springs are packaged per pair? When I spoke with Michael, he said something about making up a spare parts and option part package. Are you still contemplating that?
Springs are packaged per pair. We have a Rubber version and Foam version. Here are all the springs we offer:

RUBBER:
PS-TR15550 Shock Spring (14 x 1.5 x 5.50) 393gf/mm , 22.0lb/in
PS-TR15575 Shock Spring (14 x 1.5 x 5.75) 367gf/mm , 20.5lb/in
PS-TR15600 Shock Spring (14 x 1.5 x 6.00) 344gf/mm , 19.2lb/in
PS-TR15625 Shock Spring (14 x 1.5 x 6.25) 324gf/mm , 18.1lb/in
PS-TR15650 Shock Spring (14 x 1.5 x 6.50) 306gf/mm , 17.1lb/in
PS-TR15675 Shock Spring (14 x 1.5 x 6.75) 289gf/mm , 16.2lb/in

FOAM:

PS-TF17650 Shock Spring (13 x 1.7 x 6.50) 591gf/mm , 33.1lb/in
PS-TF17675 Shock Spring (13 x 1.7 x 6.75) 560gf/mm , 31.3lb/in
PS-TF17700 Shock Spring (13 x 1.7 x 7.00) 532gf/mm , 29.8lb/in
PS-TF17725 Shock Spring (13 x 1.7 x 7.25) 507gf/mm , 28.3lb/in
PS-TF14575 Shock Spring (13 x 1.4 x 5.75) 347gf/mm , 19.4lb/in
PS-TF14600 Shock Spring (13 x 1.4 x 6.00) 325gf/mm , 18.2lb/in
PS-TF14625 Shock Spring (13 x 1.4 x 6.25) 306gf/mm , 17.1lb/in
PS-TF14650 Shock Spring (13 x 1.4 x 6.50) 294gf/mm , 16.2lb/in

I know someone will ask about crossing over springs from Rubber to Foam or vice versa...Josh will have to answer that. LOL

Does T.O.P. USA plan to offer online shopping anytme soon?
We have some reputable online shops that will be supporting our full line. So at this time there is no plans of that, but that could change. Currently we are working on the site to put up part numbers and pictures.
