New to R/C trucks. Have been into R/C Heli and Drones for many years. Just purchased an entry level Traxxas 1/10 Stampede XL-5 TQ 2WD to get my feet wet. One reason for the purchase is that my 7 year old is very interested in my Drone flying, always wanting to help and learn. I cant really turn her loose with at $1.5k Drone or Heli... so I think this is where we will start. I have scoured this forum and others. From what I gather a few "necessary" upgrades would be as follows: - bushings to bearings (ordered) - wheelie bar (ordered) - servo saver (ordered) - large front bumber (ordered) I also have a shopping cart full at Tower with the following: - RPM Wide Front A-Arms Black Rustler/Stampede - RPM Screw Kit For Wide Front A-Arms Rustler/Stampede - Traxxas Turnbuckles Camber Link 49mm - Traxxas Turnbuckles 94mm T-Maxx (2) - Traxxas Talon 2.8" Front Tires On All-Star Stampede (2) - RPM Rear A-Arms Black Electric Rustler/Stampede (2) - ST Racing Concepts Aluminum Caster Block Anyone care to advise me on what spare parts I need - the things that break the most often and will ruin an afternoon of playing if I don't have a few extra?? So, admitting that I have a lot to learn - please let me know your thoughts, tips and tricks that only someone with experience would know. For instance, I read or watched on YouTube something about superglue and tires... anyone care to elaborate?? Thanks in advance to everyone!
