We are looking to get some cheap (but still good) electronics any suggestions?
What would you guys suggest?
What parts are common to break/fail?
For good and cheap electronics you may want to check out some options from HobbyKing.
Motor - The new Turnigy Trackstar motors are awesome value for money, they are basically a re badged Reedy motor. They are getting good reviews here on RC Tech http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...ar-motors.html
They are available from 21.5 turn right down to 3.5 turns, and at $32US that's an absolute bargain price.
ESC - The HobbyKing X-Car 120amp is basically a re badged Hobbywing 120amp esc. The Hobbywing 2 in 1 LCD programming box & Hobbywing software will work on this esc. At $35US again it's great value for money.http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...nsorless_.html
Also I notice that you have a Spektrum radio listed in your signature, if it's compatible with DSM2 receivers, then you may want to consider a Orange Box DSM2 3CH micro receiver. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._Receiver.html
I have a Spektrum DX3C transmitter and am using one of these receivers with it without any glitches or problems.
And at $10US for a micro receiver, again it's a great buy.
