Default What spares?

I want to order a few spares when I order my blast (next week hopefully )

What should I be getting? Front wishbones, hubs and front shock tower? (seen a tower go at RHR at the weekend)

Also what wheels have people got to fit? I've heard Kyosho ones will go on with a deeper front hex

You've listed the main parts... I usually get one of all suspension the parts, front, rear wishbones and shock towers.

I'd probably get a drive shaft too...not that these break often but it's a good thing to have.

I'd also get a new 'F' or adjustable servo horn and change the stock one. I've just ordered the core aluminium adjustable grip servo horn to solve a few I think it will fit, I got the blue one too so it should look cool as well

I think most 12mm hex wheels will work...fastrak etc should be fine, I'll check later.

One of everything if you don't want a crash to end your day - front and rear hubs, wishbones, steering knuckles, rod ends, shock towers and a spur gear for the plastic side of things. Usually I'd say metal parts are not an essential buy, but my one 'crash' bent three driveshafts so I'd suggest carrying these too - or finding some decent ones to fit.

Ive got a good big servo horn which should stop the link-shaft issue.
