What would be some good servos to use in this kit and what Tekin truggy motors do people use for some of the biggest tracks?

I'm going to try a Savox 1270TG on high voltage using a Castle 10 amp bec. (Edit: Actually I'll get the new HW esc with high voltage bec probably) Similar setup that I use in my e-buggy that I'm real happy with.

Figured at one point I'd just run what Lutz uses because I like Futaba, but the servo he uses (S9353HV) is $230. Dang.

I am going with a HiTec HSB-9370TH servo.
Hopefully I chose wisely.
Would appreciate feedback if I did not.

That's a good servo but honestly imo for the $ there are better options. This servo is a beast. Compare the specs to the hitec.

This new clutch is the bomb diggity! It should work on most cars, due to it essentially being an extension of the motor shaft, and it will be able to smooth out the sugared up twitchy feel of the instant electric power.

I wonder what the length is on the battery tray.

(I just bought a E-converted 3.0 and new battery. I got the battery and it's longer than normal. Don't have the truggy yet to see if the battery will fit.)

I will be getting mine today and will measure it for you. From what I understand there is no "tray" in the 3.0 the battery us strapped to the chassis.

The 8ight-T E 3.0 certainly does have a battery tray!

the inside dims are: 160mm length x 53.5mm width.

Thanks I appreciate it. My battery is 164mm. Sounds like it might fit. If not, a little dremel work should do the trick.
