Default New to nitro and onroad racing, what spare parts do I want to have for my Inferno GT2

Hello there guys,
I'm just getting into both nitro and onroad racing. I have a Inferno GT2. Which spare parts do you guys recommend I have with me in case something happens out on the track of raceday? Any help would be great and thank you!

Get the DBR9 shaped front bumper from KA
http://www.shopkyosho.com/products/p...0001/410.0.1.1
It will save you in most crashes. A-arms are good to have just in case. Hinge pins are a bit soft but can be bent back if get twisted.

Think of the new IGW-008 tranny, but if you stick with the stock tranny, get the B-version of the hi-speed gear set for a spare.

Setup your tranny to change very early, the 1st gear is just for the take off; this will make your stock tranny last a fair time.

That's it basically.

No problem! Maybe some body posts, too, if you decide to flip your car often ;-)

Oh yeah, an onroad racing air filter with an INS-BOX is something to consider, too. Insbox prevents the dirt being pushed into your engine on high speeds. It will also keep your filter clean if the track isn't. This depends on your track conditions naturally.

Stock tires are not suitable for racing, get Ipanema's or GRP's instead. Alternatively GT foams and some traction control additive, that should give you an awesome grip

I upgraded my brake pads to KYGTW324 and I really like the braking action I get now. I understand that this part # is being phased out and that KYGTW330 is the replacement part. This upgrade will prevent the brake fade that happens after you have gotten the brake really hot.

Also in additions to tires, Ipanema makes a foam bumper cut to fit the Corvette and McLaren F1 body that will help extend body life.

Get wheel nuts kyifw106 because it is only a matter of time before you loose one. Also get more KYIG110B gear sets so that you can replace 2nd gear when it strips.

Welcome to GT racing.

I forgot to mention that I have also done the brake and swaybars upgrade. I've gotta few sets of Ipanema 45s as well.

extra wheel nuts and loctite.

Loctite every metal to metal screw. Especially the hub carriers. A dab of loctite will help keep the wheel nuts in place. I've seen racing days end without a spare wheel nut.

what's the street price nowadays for inferno gt2? kyosho dropped great planes as distributor for almost 8 years and their parts support has not been that great.
