I hear ya. As of right now I am just practicing there on wed nights. I take my kids there so they can learn the track. I will be there next wed for sure.

I am just waiting for my motor to come in there and then need to get a new battery strap and figure out how I want to do the electrics.

I snapped one off, don't have to tighten very tight I guess but they need to be a little thicker for sure.

Servo - Savox 1257TG .07 speed/138oz torque
Lipo - 2s SMC 5800mah Square Pack
Tire - Rear Proline bowties/blockades or Jconcepts Goosebumps (Loose outdoor track)
Front Not sure
Pinion - Not sure for gearing with the Hobbywing and stock spur of the B5M I guess it will depend on motor as well.

Does this seem okay? This is my first 2wd buggy and I know it can get a bit cramped inside for the electronics. Is there anything at all I need to consider on top of what I listed? Will be ordering online.
Any input on this guys?

They should have just kept using the same set screws from the old hexes.

hobbywing justock is only rated for 17.5-13.5t motors. and gearing will depend on what turn motor you're running and you can reference the manual for gearing suggestions.

What are your guys opinions that are running them? I just want this car setup from the start. I know I should run it stock but I can never leave anything stock!
The shiny pucks are for mod, bi-metal for stock. The x-rings are significantly better than the std red ones. The fox shocks are smoother but are definitely not needed. I would recommend the clear x-rings though....there is a reason he probably makes minimum wage.

The HD axles are different geometry than the originals as well...they aren't just beefed up a little where the hex goes.

Running in a non-spec class on a loose outdoor track?... I would run the heavier square pack.

Everything in your list looks ok, except for the speedo. You will need to run the hobbywing stockspec instead. ("stockspec" is a different model from "just stock". As good as their ESCs are, their naming convention leaves a lot to be desired). And as suggested, your gearing will depend on your motor choice.

Thanks Matt. I will get the pucks and x-rings today when my motor comes in. I may pick up the fox shocks also since they will be torn apart anyways.

You can use your current shafts/pistons within the new fox bodies. But, if you get the new shafts (they use a screw to hold the piston on instead of an eclip) you will need to get the new pistons as they are not backwards compatible. The new pistons are only available in the machined versions and are roughly $12-13 for 4. More info can be found here:

Thank you for the responses.

I am pretty set on getting the 8.5T motor as a friend who has the same car has the same turn with a Tekin setup. I am still considering the Tekin RS but the Canadian dollar is so low right now which makes it cost more than I would like. What pinion size is best for that turn of motor?

I went with the square pack for runtime and it will make in more planted. I'm not really concerned about position the weight differently. The runtime on a 5800mah would be amazing in these little cars.

I'm thinking the blockades for the rear would be best suited for the track I run on. For the front tires, which rib tires are better suited to loose dirt?

I'm not sure I agree with that statement. Can you elaborate? I know you can use the new +4 hexes on them with the +4 pills at the inner hinge pins, but I don't think the geometry is any different with the kit supplied hexes and stock hinge pin mounts.
