Is there a specific brand or motor esc combo you recommend for the 17.5 turn? Thanks again for all the help.

All depends on your budget
Max budget:
Reedy Black Box or Orion R10 Pro and Trinity D4/Reedy Mach 2

Low budget:
SMC RF 160/Orion R10 stock and turnigy trakstar/novak

Yes a 17.5 would be an excellent motor to start with. It will not have the brute power and speed of a mod so it will allow you to learn to drive at a reasonable pace. The B5M lite was pretty much designed for the stock class with a 17.5. Get the gearing right and just practice, practice, and practice.

You guys are awesome thanks for taking the time and helping me out. I'm gonna save my pennies and try to go with the reedy or Orion. I always hear you get what you pay for. Best of luck.. I know I'll be back here again.

I have an Orion 10.1 in one buggy and a Hobbywing 3.1 in another. They both feel fantastic in blinky. I wouldn't rule out the Hobbywing ESC. The Hobbywing motors aren't bad either, but I've had my best luck with the Team Powers 17.5. For me, its faster than my D4 1S and it runs cooler without using a fan (120 vs 158).

I want to add aluminum hexes to my car. Just to confirm the parts I need are:

1) Rear hex #91442
2) Front hex #91409
3) Front axle clamp #91408

That's it? Thanks

You should already have the axles right??? But if you don't have the axles then you will also need the crosspins.

EDIT::: Just remembered, I think the clamp hexes come with the crosspins.

Personally, I would go with either the tekin rs gen2, or the hobbywing just stock. Both are going to be lighter than the orion and the blackbox (I've weighed them) I like the hobbywing just stock esc myself for stock racing, 64g's with fan. I hear the shur speed & trinity d4 1s are great motors, and should be plenty for you.

My choice combo, hw just stock, and the d4 1s short stack motor. Probably $150 for the combo, or there abouts.

And get a decent low profile servo. The savox SC1251MG is a good option. Then pickup a couple decent shorty packs, and your off racing!

FWIW the JConcepts hexes are way better! Plus the bling factor!

Different front axle to put clamping hexes on the front.

Good call!
I was not aware of the new axles!

I just did a test fit of the JC hexes on HD axles... They will not work.
