What kind of gear (budget gear) should I be looking at just to get running? The car Red-Line mo3 sold me already has some upgraded parts but I still need all the electronics.
I'm not sure how long it will take me to read through all 800+'pages of this forum so I thought I'd start with a mini intro.
Thanks for any help!
First find out what rules are being used where you plan on racing, vta can use usvta, roar or even outlaw rules.
ESC you cant beat the JUSTOCK
MOTOR under usvta it can be any 25.5 novak, under roar any brand is fine, hard to say no to a SPEED PASSION
its just as fast/slow as the novak and only $38
BATTERY dont need anything special, a 5000mAh will be legal under both rule sets and is more then you will ever need, I like the REEDY
GEARS get a ROBINSON 48p 55T spur and couple pinions from 35-43T
WHEELS HPI 4793 & 4797 with whatever rims you like
Go out and have fun
