Thnx,

Well...I will tell you what I got with mine, then you can decide.
I ordered spare belts (one front, one rear), spare from arms, spare steering knuckles (both of which I am yet to brake). If you don't want to buy aluminum caster blocks, try the plastic, but try out 3, 4.5, and 6 degree (at least for asphalt). An old style diff to turn into a spool. Diff rebuild "kit". Get some different springs: for asphalt - light blue, dark blue (along with what comes with the car). Possibly the impact absorbing bumper. I also got the battery brace and aluminum shock bodies.

Ya, I mean that is what most people are going to buy, but I never use one-ways...and I still don't know what a one-way spool is, so I went old-school.

I think this is referring to the X Ray Multi Diff

3 options

1. standard 1 way with both wheels operating independantly

2. 1 way with both wheels working same

3. add apin and you have a spool

Yea get the multidiff instead ...you can turn it into a spool, a oneway or a locked oneway (feels hecka wierd in locked oneway mode ...to me anyways). Also spring steel hubs for t least your front end, the stock alu ones tend to mushrrom out if you hit to much stuff or lock-to-lock your wheels when turning ...then you gotta perform major surgery to get them out of the steering blocsk after that.

Ahh, I forgot about the front spring steel axles. I put those on my car when I was first building it.

Discount Auto Parts. I tried Lowes and they didn't have it. It was about 6 bucks for a huge can of it. I'll be sure to let u know how it looks after a few weekends. I hope just as good as it does now.

Anyone know of a hobby shop that current has a spool in stock? (the oringal unit, rc america I dont think is getting anymore in stock...)

Also just a note about the arms, I am pretty sure that the new car comes with the new hard arms however they are not marked (although when you try to depress them down they dont flex, where as the old ones twisted right off the droop screws) so if you replace an arm or order a new arm just take note of that.

Also I would highly suggest the p-dub/rubberneck racing bumper, saved me about $50 worth of front end parts at every race i go to, lol.

Yeah, the stock arms feel the like hard ones--I agree.

Sorry, Mark. Most places are out of the old school spool.

Alright...so, I guess I am going to have to join the club of people who are complaining about the main drive bearings. I don't hit the walls very often, but this time it was quite hard. I broke a steering knuckle and bent a dogbone. I looked at my car a few minutes ago, and noticed a clicking in the drivetrain. Well, both bearings in the steering knuckle that was cracked are messed up, and all four!!! of the rear bearings in the rear uprights. I have no idea how you can mess up that many bearings in two weekends. Nothing like this has ever happened. Just amazing!!!

My Theory about the bearings is that they are not lubed at the factory. They're bone dry just like the diffs. The friction is destroying them both
