Spedd passion, 50 buck esc, and my MMM 17.5 seems to have more torque then other motors I have tried.

Any modern style Speed Control from any manufacturer will do the trick in Stock, same with any stock motor. Just have to find what you like best and use it.

The D3.5 will fall off the ROAR approval list in April, if that's not an issue then that motor will work as well.

You cannot go wrong with the Spektrum S6040 servo. They are rock solid. Or the S6070 if you need a low profile servo.

The only reason I did not include it, is because as of March it will no longer be Roar legal.

Also I run an s6040 servo from spektrum. 166oz/in and .08/sec speed. Beautiful servo.

My setup in my sig, is a hand built setup based just around stock racing, and I couldn't be happier with it all.
