Default Typcial parts you break/damage/replace

I'm about to put a mail order for a Kyosho v-one-S 3, any recommendations on what spares i should order along with it.

I'm thinking:

Foam bumper
Front/Rear belts
Tyres

Can anyone add to the "must have list" i'm not racing, just carpark thrashing... so durability takes precedance over speed.

Thanks

The only thing that will last is the FOAM bumber

It is good to have suspension plastic parts , dogbones (or cv axles) & bumper plastic parts.

The only things you are likely to break are, the things you don't have spares of.

Sad, but true...

It's always a good idea to get a set of arms, knuckles, shock towers and gears, as if you hit something they will most likely take the brunt of the impact. The gears will work not only if you want to swap gear ratios but once a pesky rock gets wedged inside and shreds the gears
