Hey all I'm looking to purchase a dedicated ESC for this car. Anyone have any reccomendations? I'm definitely going to run a mod motor in this monster... Suggestions for the right thing?

That's what we get when sportsman drivers run mod. He was running some decent lines but blew the line and gunned it to get back in and that's when that killer turning D413 made the pass and we hit. You heard the rest on the stand. I didn't want to hear his mouth so I just stopped. Should have kept going but these are toy cars. Good luck next Friday as I won't be there. Hope you get your tierods before then with tomorrow being a holiday.

1.6 flats all the way around, going to put 1.7 in rear. When I ordered they only came in a set of 4, now you can buy in pairs so I'm going to get the 1.7 for the rear.

I already have the size pistons you're going to in my car. The kit came with blanks to make what ever size you prefer. I have been running the 1.6. And 1.7 combo since I got the buggy. I'll be making me another front set of 4 hole pistons. 2 holes will be 1.4 and the other 2 will be 1.1. I liked this combo with 1.6 in the rear on my Yokomo. Can't hurt to try.

Part for part everything is interchangeable front to back except the outdrives. What happened to your rear diff?

Only the outdrives. They are different lengths, the rest of the diff is the same.
