Default Replacement Spurs

Does anybody have recommendations for replacement spurs that are not Xray originals.

How about Kimbrough or Robinson Racing?

What would be a goods "spares list" for replacement parts to take to the track or have on hand? Since most my parts are going to be had mail order, and not off the shelf at the races, I'm wondering what I need to have with me at races. What are the essential spare parts?

The captured ball ends for the camber links. They don't pop off so in a really bad collision, they'll break. Get some extra C-hubs and a set of arms of coarse. Honestly, the car really doesn't break much at all. You really have to hit something hard and at the right, or wrong depending on your point of view, angle to break something. I was banging off the boards like a retard on crack tonight and didn't break anything.

i would suggest a spare front and rear belts, a pair drive shafts and get a few packets of the Low friction drive pin clips

also as said above a pair of c-hubs and front arms

Part number 305431 front belt
Part number 305442 rear belt
Part number 305321 drive shafts
Part number 305240 drive pin clips

this is a nice easy site to find your part numbers

kimbrough will fit but only one way and only if you scratch the number off the edge closest to the motor mount

Robinson fit straight on (better choice)

it would be good if xray started making 64p spurs

Agree with you re 64p.

It depends on what track you race at. Go to your track and find out what rollout most people are using.

Default screws

Besides the obvious price and material difference, whats the advantage of getting titanium over stainless steel?

Do the stainless steel srews strip as well? Do the titanium ones NOT strip?

Thanks,

Don

Titanium is roughly half the weight of stainless
