Default Most wanted parts for Volcano

Okay I just ordered the Volcano STX and I am wondering What parts are most frequently broken on this RC. Judging by Redcats parts list I am guessing steering knuckles...(all out of stock!) I did read that HPI Alum. Knuckles will work ,is this true?? Any other things I should maybe preorder with truck ?? I want to try and replace what I need to right away or at least have it ready to go!

02014 and 02015 are a big seller. Also the body mounts if you flip it alot. Yes they are out of stock but I have another wholesaler and will have them this week.
You might also want to consider changing the remote. I personally like the spektrum.

<<<---- 1st time poster [X(] lol so all help is appreciated.

Are these steering arms and door type mounts aluminum?

I just bought the Volcano (mainly due to everyone's good reviews here) and I'm looking to pre-order w/e might tweak the truck a little bit and improve handling/performance.
Thx in advance

Welcome CA_Fun_N_Sun,

The steering arms and door type mounts are plastic.
That's why they have a high demand, they seem to break easy.
The Volcano is the same as the Tyrannosaurus from HI-Speed. We cary parts for them in stock.
Check out our website.


BTW, where in Cali are you?

I read somewhere in here, "if it ain't broke - then you ain't going fast enough" - or was it not having fun????

Something like that.... I apologize in advance, I've buchered this saying..


You know what I mean.

I found someone on this forum that said the ones from an HPI Super nitro RS4 fit.
I cannot validate this as I have not bought any. But they look exactly the same.

here: http://cgi.ebay.com/HPI-Super-Nitro-...QQcmdZViewItem

or here: http://stores.ebay.com/NewWorldConce...QQftidZ2QQtZkm


If you need the 02014, we have a few in stock at www.topspeedtoys.com
