Radio controlled vehicles can be just as intricate as their full-sized counterparts. Motors, bearings, transmissions and more can break down within the RC vehicle rendering it unusable. When this happens, you need to purchase repair parts. However, many of these require you to assemble yourself prior to installing. For instance, purchasing a transmission for your Traxxas could have you spending a great deal of time assembling the part before you actually install it into the vehicle. This is where kits begin to make a difference.
Instead of buying a single rear drive shaft for a Traxxas Slash Ultimate, you could buy a set that has everything you’ll need for the entire assembly. This means you could replace the entire driveline with brand new parts or save them for future damages. Because you can buy the complete set, you can get them at a lower cost per part than you would otherwise.
Spare Parts On Hand
Using the earlier example, you don’t have to use the entire set for a single rear drive shaft replacement. If the nuts, washers and screw pins are still in good condition, then the set will give you a surplus of replacement parts for when these do break down. This means you won’t have to spend time waiting on shipping or looking for specific single pieces such as these.
Return to Like-New Condition
Many people will buy these kits in order to replace the entire assembly with brand new parts. This means that the parts that are being replaced will make that aspect of the vehicle operate in like-new condition. There will be less chance of failure during play or competition.
Keeping Repairs Uniform
When replacing more than one connection or part, uniform design is required for efficient repairs. If you need two suspension arms and purchase each one individually, you run the risk of variable measurements in manufacturing. Kits usually use the same molds and manufacturing processes making each part perfectly measured and aligned with the other.
Logically grouped Traxxas parts can save you a great deal of time and money by supplying you with the very objects you need in order to get the vehicle back into use. By purchasing sets such as these, you ensure that the entire assembly will continue to function for longer periods of time. Don’t underestimate the value of having extra repair and replacement parts for future damages.
