if your new to the hobby I would have the following

a couple spur gears...might take ya a couple times to learn how to properly mesh them so the clutchbell doesnt eat them

I like to have the following parts on hand

front upper and lower arms
steering linkage (tie-rods is what I call em)
front axles
full set of shocks
an extra servo
and being its a 1/10th I would keep a set of rear gogbones handy...once you get the hang of it you will learn to properly set your buggy up so u dont loose dogbones
if you do a bit of reading you will learn some tricks to help you out

nitro rc's are a bit of a learning curve but once ya get the hang of them they are so dang fun your addicted...
