sorry ifthis has already been covered...but ther has been a lot of talk about the RDX lately..I was just curious what spares someone would want or need to have on had if running this car? Consider that this would most liekly be for your average club racer, not an A-mainer, but ab upper-middle of the pack guy (Read FAST gear but still cuts some corners tight and may have some wall clippage)

Thanks
a pack of arms,steering knuckles and maybe a shock tower

I think he's talking about the shims that go between the pin holder and the bulkhead.

You should have a couple things left over (little stuff). They are the "just in case" types of things.

i used those aluminum spacers behind the lower shock mount on the suspension arm, it makes the shock straighter and more efficient

Those are losi springs. I picked up the silver spring kit today. As for setup, I copied wannabe (Kevin E's) setup today and it is awesome. Couldn't tell you what it is but it's good for a tight carpet track.

Oh yeah...for anyone on the edge on whether or not to get this car...RDX is MONEY!!!!
