your FDR will probably range from 3.4 to 3.8. so just get the appropriate pinion gears.

for spare parts, just get the arms, c-hubs, steering knuckles and bottom king pin screws. it's a somewhat durable car despite popular believes. nothing else should break in a small to medium crash.
I have been running kimbrough, Serpent, xray and even the panaracer spur gears. You just need the flat philips screws from tamiya - part 51211, and then all spurs fit with no issues.

I have started using RW spur gears however i countersunk the holes on em and used small counter sunk screws to achieve a perfect fit.
