Would something like this be OK?
XERUN 17.5T Combo-XS5A Xtreme 60A ESC for Stock Racing

Or do you reckon the ESC is a bit under-done?
I've run Hobbywing's 60A esc with a higher kv motor with no problems though it's the ezrun and not the xerun series. That said I always try to get the highest rated esc possible within my budget.

I saw some tamiya super grip "60d" tires on ebay. Will those work?

I would prefer to purchase the wheels and tires form an online store instead of ebay.

I also want to go with the tamiya "m" chassis wheels.

Thanks.

M Chassis wheels will work. Take off the chassis spacers so you get more
clearance. The 60D will work as will ABC, Sweeps etc. For running on the street HPI belted X Patterns work pretty well.

running a novak rooster 12t and p2k2 motor, FFRC full bear kit (best improvement out there!!), and a carbon upper deck. Rest is pretty much stock stuff.






Drifter:
novak rooster 12t and fantom racing team stock 27t motor, jr servo, and some hpi drift tires.

It's an awesome chassis man! I just sold all my other on-road kits because the CR is incredible.

Are the drift tires pre-mounted? If not, which rim did you use?

Default Low profile servo to mount vertically rather than on their side?

Hi,

Has anyone mounted a low profile servo in their car so that it can be mounted in the normal fashion rather than on its side?

I was considering one of these
http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-ser...Path=1099_1025

If I read the manual right mounting them horizontally give more steering.

Any other suggestions for servos most appreciated.
