I saw today that Tower Hobbies reduced the price on the Typhon to 379.99 and I had a code for 47 off so I decided to buy it for 332.99. I am just curious if there are any commonly weak parts that I should know about before it arrives and should maybe add to the order before it ships. I haven't found anything reading about it but figured some of you guys may have some ideas.

I wish there was a smoking gun (well, mayne not). But for instance, I have gopro footage running my typhon into a curb, and then it flying into a fence at 75mph. The only damage was that the steering ball joint came out. Sure, it was a little scratched up, but this (like any arrma product) is pretty robust out of the box. Honestly, for a chassis like this with its perscribed use, its very overbuilt IMO.

Awesome thats what I was hoping to hear. I figured that it was a lot like my Senton where I should just need to check the factory tire glue, fluid levels and run but just figured I would see if there was any common parts ahead of time.
