    Mine should be delivered today, also got J Concepts wheels and about 4 different types of Clod size tires to choose from. Any suggestions for what parts to buy first, what usually breaks on these? Thanks guys

    What kind of power are you putting in it? Steel trans gears are a must anyways.

    Aluminum axle housings (the hd helical gears pushed apart and stretched the housings, aluminum wheel spacers) (stripped on 2nd run) oh and sway bars for sure.

    It already has swaybars on the rear, definitely needs them on the front. My tires are hitting the links and binding up so I have to figure that out next. Running the Pro-Line offset wheels with Firestorm tires. I've also already scratched the body, gotta figure out what pinion to run with the 4600 I ended up putting in and Clod tires...

    What offsets are on the wheels? I have 25mm and still had to set steering endpoints at like 50%

    17.5mm Pro-Line wheels. They need about another 8mm per side, found some Axial wideners so I am going to try those. Turned my EPA down to 80% per side until then.

    Check out jconcepts 25mm aluminum ones. Also i recommend the stock sway bar for the front also. I run a 12t pinion and steel spur. Gotta get hardened pinion though keep chewing em up.

    I would never run a steel spur, so no issue there. I'd rather the easy/cheap thing to replace be the weak link in my drivetrains. I have the front swaybar on the way, steel transmission gears, Axial 8mm wideners, RC4wd 12mm wideners if the Axial ones are not enough, heavy duty axle gears, an aluminum flag mount (not sure where to get the flags?), and STRC aluminum steering knuckles. Should be all I need for now I imagine.

    Thanks, but do those flags not come with the poles? The website literally has no description of what it comes with or what you are buying.

    They're also expensive @ $12 each. I used these for my Barbarian Digger:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/12-SMALL-4-X...IAAOSwLVZV3KWO

    12 Flags for $12. I figured I would tear them up all the time but I'm still on my first one, decent quality. I removed the yellow pole and using thin all thread from Home Depot covered in rubber fuel line. Drilled a hole in the chassis and just used a nut on the bottom. Here are a few pics of it. Not exactly to scale, but I think it looks good enough. You can see the nut for the mounting in the last picture.

    Thanks, he has some cool flags, Army, American, checkered, POW, etc. Might have to order up a few. And yes, I have this posted in 2 places, gotta get some posting going on here! Lol

    Actually, I found this place https://www.united-states-flag.com/ and ordered a few different things. I don't need 12 of each and I wanted about 4 different types so that would have been expensive. Shipping was less than 5$ for around 12 flags so total was about 20$. Not too bad.
