to be honest, i broke several of the plastic steering blocks before... i highly recommend the aluminum set.

it really depends on skill level, and the type of track you race at. my local one is pretty car-friendly, but most of the carpet tracks i travel to have some pretty stout boards. the BRP bumper mod is a good idea for those types.

since i went to the alum blocks, i rarely have a problem.

Make a Kydex bumper for it and get a HARD FOAM bumper from us as well. I had two HIGH IMPACT crashes this weekend and I didn't break a single part.

All car kits are sold out currently.

The car is like any other car. You tap the pipe/wall a little to much it will break something. I broken one arm and bent two dog bones. I'm still trying to learn to drive an oneway LOL. I've put in an ntc3 bumper along with the hard dense foam bumper and I've broke one arm last weekend during a practice session. I was testing different drive lines and caught a disc the wrong way.

The wide bumper and high dense foam would the the first investment to the car or drive in the middle of lanes all the time.

My RDX puts up with a lot of abuse, since I'm still getting the hang of racing sedans (I came from an off-road background a few months ago), and I've been doing it in 19T. The only thing I've broken, after plenty of bone-jarring meetings with the boards is a couple of arms, and a bent CVD. As long as you keep a few extra arms and CVDs around, that should take care of most things.

Like others have said, get a rubberneck bumper, or something similar. I tried the kydex bumper trick, and it immediately bent in after a solid hit and destroyed a new foam tire. It seems to work for others, but it went warp 9 toward the trash once my rubberneck showed up.

I sort of keep a mental note of what parts I see or hear of other people breaking, so I can keep some extras around. Here's what I've got. If anybody else wants to add to the list, that would be great.

1. Arms
2. Steering knuckles (plastic only)
3. Bent CVDs.
4. Body posts
5. Thrust washers (diff)
6. Shock end (the part that holds the ball)
7. Shock tower
8. Wheel hexes (over tightening)
9. Ball cups

One of the greatest maintenance virtues of this car is that nearly all the parts work on the front and back. That's great for keeping things like spare arms around.

I've started running mod just about a month ago and I've hit stuff hard, went underneath pipes, did barrel roll in the air across the track. So far, I have fractured the front tower (from going underneath a pipe), broke 2 wheel hex (because of overtightening).

But I definitely think the spare parts to carry at all times are

Arms
shock tower(s)
rear bodypost plate
CVD bones
Bearings (of course!)

I use aluminum knuckles and XRAY body posts, I probaby won't be breaking those anytime soon (knock on wood!)

Ball ends, you can just use AE 1/12th ball ends, they are cheap.

Hopefully within 2 weeks as I am sure we could sell every kit they ship.

I would check out the Dealer Page on www.corallyusa.com and see what is available. You won't have to pay tax on it and sometimes FREE Shipping.

Stormer Hobbies..... Excel R/C....... Ampdraw..... The Track...... and many others might still have kits in stock. Worth taking a look.

I believe Speedtech RC also has some kits in stock, and they definitely have parts.

A little birdie told me that KT Hobbies will soon be carrying Corally RDX's and parts.
