Default Time for new parts. Need suggestions.

Well I have had my 5B for 4 days and I've already bent the chassis and front upper support. I was able to salvage the the chassis but had to get a new upper support. Then today I head out to the BMX track and in less than 5 minutes. I break a front lower A-Arm. So now I've decided to go with a full front end upgrade so I can hopefully enjoy this thing. I need suggestions on what parts to go with and also where to get them. I checked out TGN but alot of their parts are out of stock. Thanks for the help.

If it did break by itself claim it.

When not: learn to control your throttle finger or steer around trees and other obstacles might help

Alloy beefs up the car for sure but all is bend and breakable.
You could have a look at the DDM shop, they have loads of parts.
