Default New to Losi - Mini 8ight

New here but glad to join you guys.

I just got a mini 8ight and broke the hub carrier in the first minutes. I could not find the ball stud that fell out so I'm getting an order together for some spare parts.

What spare parts to you all recommend that I have on hand?

What are some "necessary" upgrades that will save me headaches down the road?

Any other tips for a mini-8ight newbie are welcomed!

Thanks in advance!

Its good to have spare spurs and pinions, drive pins, maybe a set or 2 of wheels. Also it dont hurt to get a couple hardware and e - clip sets.

Oh also, heat shrink tubing comes in handy. Also if u haven't already get an after market steering servo cuz the stock one will eventually go out.

get some slash 4x4 lower shock ends as the stock ones are, well, lame.

upper shock caps for spares.

upgrade shock towers to carbon fiber when they bend.

set of a arms for spares.

tbone front bumper when stock one goes out and it will.

aluminum hinge pin carriers when plastic ones go.
