Hello all, have been reading a lot here and have learned a lot.
Giving my son a VXL Stampede for Christmas (already have it) and have been researching and purchasing
items and spare parts for it. Don't want him to break a part in the first day and be without the truck for
a week waiting for a part.
I have purchased the following items and was wondering what I might have missed as far as a
"high failure rate" part.

I actually can't wait for him to break a part so we can work on the truck together. :-)
If this is a fairly complete list then I hope others can use it when they are starting out.
