Hey, I am brand new to the RC world. Only RC car I have ever had before now was a $20 walmart wired car. I currently have a Volcano EPX Pro with a 7.2V 40C LiPo, not a bad little rig. The only issue I am having, which I am sure is perfectly normal, is that I am constantly breaking the hub carriers (front and rear). I am in the process of looking/buying aluminum parts. I plan on replacing everything that I can with aluminum. So far I have:
-Control Arms (front/rear)
-Front/rear linkages (tie rods?)
-Front C carrier
-12mm wheel hex
-Front/rear hub carrier
So my question is, with all of the upgrades, do I need to buy anything additional like bushings, new/different screws, etc... Any help/advice would be AWESOME. Also, are there any custom parts (i.e. roll cages, bigger bumpers, wheel spacers...)?. Again, I am brand new to all of this but I am loving it more and more (at least when it's in operational condition). Thanks in advance for any help!
