Also what type of ESC are you guys using? I'd use a brushed setup but I'm having a hard time finding a decent motor. If I go brushless it seems like the choices for a 3.7v controller are limited.
As far as I know only the Futaba.

A good brushed motor is the CheckPoint Money 19T.

For brushless you could use almost any with a receiver pack or booster. I even used an old Novak GTB with their booster while waiting for my Tekin RS to come in. If you want one that doesn't need a Rx pack or booster then you are correct the choice is very limited.

However, the newer LRP is being hyped up that it has a "dual BEC" to run 1S but I have yet to see one. At my local track it is Tekin RS, GTB 4cell and Advanced Electronics that are the most popular (all using the very small 2S LiFe 220mah pack).

Guys at my track are definitely using the new LRP, without a receiver pack and 1s lipo.

I believe most are doing this solely because they dont want to have to run a receiver pack.

I've had the same experience with two SMC 1S packs, while a Reedy and Thunder Power pack still run strong.

With the LRP SXXSS, and no booster or receiver pack, the servo is faster than my Tekin RS with a receiver lifepo pack or TQ booster.
I find that very interesting ?

The RS servo setup is still plenty fast, but it took a while to get used to the increased servo speed with the LRP.

with the upgrade of the Lipo aftermarket chassis you can use the Jr servo. Hitec servoes will work, but they aren't the same quality as the Futaba or Jr servoes, and they aren't the "perfect" fit. Hitec's micro servo is slower, heavier, and I believe less torque.

I fianlly got all the parts in for my 12R5/5.1 and I'm looking forward to getting back on the track.

So you're saying that the LRP puts out more than 6.6 volts to the Rx.

I'm a little confused about what LRP has done with their line up. What is the preffered ESC for boosted 17.5 on one cell?

LRP SXX Stockspec or LRP SXX V2?? What is the difference?

Thanks in advance

What pinion would be recommended?
using stock spur with a novak havok 13.5 brushless.

LRP SXX Stockspec is best for Stock Spec motors, i.e. 10.5 to 21.5
LRP SXX V2 is intended for mod, low wind motors.

I haven't measured the voltage, just going by feel, I have the same equipment in both R5's aside from speedos.
The Lrp is definitely quicker with the servo.

The rated current for V1's are 764amp compare to v2 which are 400amp. If you open it up you can see 1 role of fet is missing! This is the reason it is cheaper. I am not sure if it is for a price reason or something. The V2 sure do not feel as 'punchy' as the V1. Not very noticable if you run high T motors. But for modified class the different is very big.

Based on a spur of 96t and rear tyres 45mm I was running a rollout of about 55mmpr on our track that is quite small so that would be a 37 t pinion. But this much depends on your tyre size and track size. I would start at that then work up on motor temps.
What size is your spur / tyres/ track size ?
Hope it helps mate. I was in the same boat as you a while ago, just remember your rollout will change as your foam get smaller.
