Spares should include front arms, steering knuckles, belts, pulleys, bearings and as much stuff your budget allows. It is better to be prepared than have to bum of other racers. And of coarse extra tires and glow plugs.

Quick question:

Is your MTX3's rear end can touch the ground ? I mean the rear end chassis can hit the ground if you press down the car.

My MTX3's rear end cannot touch the ground, it has 5mm gap between them. Is this normal ?

thats abnormal. are your foam tyres very low ? and are your shocks adjusted all the way down?

your JP FX i think would last around 10-12 litres if you change the con-rod every 3 litres i think.

Abnormal ?? OMG.... is it only me ?

The foam tires are brand new and un-shaved. My rear shock cannot fully compressed because something is limiting the downward travel.

Does your question answer itself? It's actually backwards, something is limiting the uptravel of the arms, Check your limit screws.
