Thanks in advance for your help!
ask at your local track to see what they run in them
I've personally run 27t stocker in mine with a tekin FX Pro, as well as a 17.5 with a tekin RS in...there's even been talk at one of the tracks near me about trying 21.5 motors in the car...and then there's guys on this thread putting 10.5 (and lower) motors in them - crazy, but they work...
Just ask and see what your local place does before dropping $$ on a system that might not work for you

here you go:
1) no, a 12th scale servo will be too small to mount on the CR servo posts...Yes, you could take it in, but the torque will most likely me too lower to handle the CR - remember, its just a smaller TC
2) the biggest are the little 'nipples' on the front diff gear (this is the one that the driveshaft connects too and turns the front diff...MikeR uses the metal gear from the rear and he likes it - i haven't tried it as mine is packed away for the winter...
3) you can use any mini-car wheels on this, so if you look at atomic, 3racing, square, they should make a dish wheel and a 'racing' tire...all the HPI wheels/tires are realistic rims (ie, no dishes) and can only mount the CR tires...and CR tires can only go on CR rims - mounting bead is special for the CR...I've run Tamiya 60D tires on my car and they worked pretty well
