I suggest having spare C-Hubs and spur gears as these are the only things I ever have to replace. knock on wood.

I put the rubberneck racing bumper on mine. I've only broke a c-hub and lower shock ball cup thing... the part screwed to the end of the shock shaft. That's after 60 or more packs through the car by now and lets just say I move a lot of boards when I drive.

Now I know why the Xray parts are so expensive. Because they are high quality and just don't break very easily.

There are some issues with the stock spur gears, they break very easy, use precisionracing spurs they last longer.
It is easy to bend the front drive shafts.
The front alu axles are worth to change to steel ones.
If you use ackerman extensions or the outside hole for the steering link on the new steering knuckles it is easy to break them.
I broke the C-hubs too two times.
We had discussions about the shocks some people like them some not. You will see...

And yes, you really need that p-Dub bumper it is "for free" if you know what I mean

HRCRACER,

I have the foam shock tower and I think it is a great thing to have. I use tamiya shocks and they fit on that more easily too. I used only mazda 6 and Stratus they fit no problem

Default Thanks for all the info

Thanks for all the info !!!!

This sounds like the car for me.

The parts maybe a little expensive but you get what you pay for.
I would rather pay for high qaulity parts as long as I am not breaking all of the time (CORALLY RDX).........

Thanks to all

Haven't broke anything yet (shouldn't have said that ) except for a take off wheel when the car went into a concrete wall , one thing i would get and i am going to get are the spring steel axles for the front as the standard ones deform which means you can't get the bearings off as easily as you would like

I've used the Hudy grease (the stuff in the syringe) and have had good luck with it.

I've switched to the Corally lube. It's seems more consistent than other lube I've used. It doesn't break down as quickly so I can go longer periods without rebuilding my diff. I've had my Corally for over three months now and my diff is still as smooth as when I built it. I even used this lube on the thrust bearing.
