What do you think? Did I make the right choices?
The stock spec is basically the same as the regular 3.1 only it is 100a vs 120a but it still can run down to a 5.5t which the regular 3.1 runs down to a 5.5t with 2s lipo off road the only major difference is the stock spec only ways like 40 grams bc it has a plastic case which is great for stock, were the regular 3.1 weighs like 90 grams bc it has an aluminum case. But the 3.1 is still a great choice just making sure you realize the differences I know it is very misleading to call it "Stock Spec"

Yes for 2s lipo off road, which I know doesn't make sense but just click "Specifications" compare them http://www.falconsekido.com/products...ock-v3-1-black

I have been wanting to try the inline setup with the battery inline also, what are you guys doing to the setup vs. inline electronics with the battery sideways?
As far as shock oils, springs, etc...I have inline electronics with battery sideways now, 32.5 Front, 30 rear, all Asc white springs.

the only difference is 100 vs 120 amp and the v3.1 NON spec has an all alum case, which is heavier.

The stock spec even has all of the timing and boost functions of the V3.1. I almost didn't buy the stock spec at first because I assumed it was a locked blinky speed controller.

Your servo has a rated stall current of 5 amps and your ESC's BEC is only rated to 3 amps.

I killed a BEC in a Viper VTX10R ESC using the Savox SC-1257TG (sister sevo to 1258TG).

YMMV...

What would be another good option for a servo then? Also I might go to the V3.1 Stock Spec instead since it is just about the same thing sans 20 amps and a aluminum case.

I have been running this one for over a year without any issues.

I personally have had no issues with the Hobbywing V3.1 and Savox 1257 or 1258 in any of my applications. I have been running this setup for over 2 years. The Servo is not going to pull near those kind of amps in a 10th scale application, even in a 4wd SCT, I have not had any BEC issues. I am confident you will be very happy with those choices.

I run the 1257Tg, a better option than the 1258, with my Orion R10.1 pro and haven't had any issues.
