The car comes with 2 extra wheel lugs. You ger 6 wheel lugs with the foam tire upgrade, and you get some wheel lugs with the tool kit. So I am guessing that wheel lugs are the biggest things to get lost.

I read somwhere in this forum of someone getting a small assorted metal nut thing from RS and found some that fit. You could try that.

OK I have found an easy solution!

Go to Radio Shack and purchase part # 63-3017 It is only $1.99. What it is, is a pack of 40 machine Hex Nuts. The threads are the SAME as the wheel studs! You cannot use the X-Mod hex tool to mount them, but a pair of tweesers or needle nose pliers work just fine. Or you can use 2 nuts (They will fit) and lock them together. Then you will not have to worry about any tires falling off unless you unlock the nuts.

magnetize all of your extra parts and stick them to something metal that way you will know were your extra parts are and they wont get lost
