Default Never mind...

I just checked the Yokomo Parts List. In the Gears section they have a part number for 5x10 bearings.

Snake_bit: Thanks. I'll look into getting the clutch bell. I'm still WAY undergeared for my local track with the 14-17. Right now, it's got a wide sweeper leading on to a 120-140 ft. straight. I'm usually near full speed as I come off of the sweeper! I wish Serpent made more spurs that fit the stock 2-speed clutch bell. The standard 2-speed spurs will onlly work with the Centax. You can't line the gears up properly with the standard clutch bell!

Ya I thought it a Little Strange to Only make very limited Gear ratios Maybe This Will Help You Out Some.

Default Most common broken parts?

I just got rid of my MTX-2, and I'm thinking of getting an Impulse before next season. What parts are broken the most on that car? I would assume front and rear suspension arms and hub carriers. What other parts should I stock up on? I can get Serpent parts through my LHS, but it takes a week or two.
