Picked up a t2 and broke a steering block and need to get a parts order placed,of all spare parts what would you most need. also is it easy on this car to break steer blocks because it really didn't seem to take a hard hit to break it.

Steering blocks and c-hubs seem to go pretty easily. Usually the broken knuckle takes the hub out with it. Xray makes aluminum knuckles that work well and so does Team Tamale. After spending $30+ on stock knuckles, I bought the aluminum ones and haven't broken anything since. Also continue to check the bolts that hold on the hinge pin carriers. Since the arms are super strong, these bolts tend to bend and force your car to do crazy things.

Get a P-Dub front bumper. You will less likley break anymore. The stock Xray unit is a useless waist of foam. I have used the P Dub unit and have not broke any suspension parts. And I race or practice once a week. And I do hit things

Tamiya blade seems to be 3mm so it might work!!
This might be a great idea. I really do not like the price of the Xray units.

I forgot about the bumper. It seems to be a given with any car that I buy anymore. Great advice.

Look here at the Xray Website for a lot of T2 setups for different conditions and classes.
