I'd start by downloading the instruction manual, and ordering the parts you need for the vehicle from your LHS according to part number... Same with the starter box wheel you need. You can also shop by part number online through some of the online hobby stores.

Good luck.

The Losi clutch that was intended for it works great. If you want to use aftermarket clutch e.g. M2C brand is what I use..you still want to try and use the Losi clutch bells because most all other clutch bell gear comes up a little short to perfectly align with the spur gear (too short in overall length). Even if you shim everything to the edge of the crankshaft still about 2mm short of having full contact. Doesn't matter how you shim it the motor simply sits too far back. It will align 75% which will work but not the best.

I was told adjustable motor mounts would eliminate the problem too but pricey.

The losi clutch bells are offset at the end. The gear actually extends a little past the bearing. On most bells the gear and bearing are about flush/even at the end. Losi extending the gear past the bearing and crankshaft end gives that 100% reach.
