    aftermarket redcat parts?

    I see that most places offer replacement parts but not aftermarket redcat stuff.

    Looking for tires mainly, or should I just use another brand, or other cool aftermarket parts.

    yea sorry bout that guess i forgot to specify I have a Hurricane XTE. Trying to stock up on some parts and was wondering if there were any aluminum upgrades for the buggy.

    Smashed a grapefruit sized rock today and thought I broke an A-arm, but it had just popped out, took it inside to put it back together and realized it broke the front gearbox which holds the arm in place. Also ruptured the shock so it leaked everywhere and also broke the servo saver. Was a pretty nice loud hit though lol.

    Raeodor, you can use any standard 1/8th buggy wheels and tires. There are quite a few hopups from Redcat on the car, however I stay away from the alum. A-Arms, Going metal there just moves the problem to harder to change parts. For me the biggest bump was going to good tires, and that will really depend on where you are running your rig.

    Mostly dirt. Light foliage and the dirt is rather hard. Good place nearby with a lot of 6ft hills for good climbing or insane jumps. Might post a video when its all put back together. Hate waiting for the parts. Too bad I live 20 min from their distribution center but still takes 5 days to get anything.

    Best upgrade so far has been my wheels and tires. Just slapped on some 2.2" RPM wide rock crawler rims and proline 2.2" trenchers. Crazy difference, just need to retune and she'll be a monster. Click image for larger version.
