Get all your stuff from rcmarket, hes so awsome and has the best selection of cyclone parts.

If your curious heres a complete list of parts i broke or bent on my moorespeed:

-Ti-coated hinge pins
-Graphite c-hubs
-Graphite steering knuckles
-Graphite arms
-Alloy c-hubs
-Servo saver
-CVD's
-bulkhead
-servo horn
-wheels
-outdrives
-CVD blades
-ball cups

cheers
With my Cyclone the only thing i have broken so far is the hubs (part#73507), bent a CVD but since i replaced them with Titanium racing ones and they have been awesome. ive been using them for about 4 months now, also might be good to get some diff screws and the suspension arm (part#73506). and the only thing that wears is the diff, if u race in mod. i think the new diff is a lot better so wont need to be rebuilt as often.

i think the reason i was stripping servo horns and breaking servo savers was because if you add an alloy steering arm instead of the stock plastic one, you need to back off the servo saver almost all the way to allow it some flex. I guess they used plastic for a reason. Basically if I hit hard with the wheels turned into the wall it would break the saver and strip the threads on the horn. Fixed it.

Also since my track changed to click-track, its much more forgiving on the cars. Before we had solid solid wood/steel as barriers...yeah wicked ghetto.
