I just got a crc 6 pack off these forums and once I got the rear end put together correctly and some new tires the thing handles awesome!! I think parts may be harder to get than say for a associated car. Ya, I like to be able to order off tower.
I first had a novak dually in it. Kinda big but worked really good. Put a lrp quantum 2 in it I had. Fits much nicer. The reciever I just mounted on top the servo.
There are LRP pulsar chargers in the for sale thread here for a very good price. I got one and it works great for me, as I also don't need the very high end stuff. You can set the amps, the cut off, it'll break in motors, run a comm lathe, and discharge at 10 amps.
As far as batteries.. just depends what ya want I suppose. You want to run with the boys in the A or in the B/C. Me I didn't care and got two six cell packs of 3300's off ebay for 23 bux. Split em into three 4 cell packs. They work fine for me. In 1/10 oval I didn't plan to run but the B main. 1/12 road coarse I haven't actually raced yet, but think I'll be A or B in that. We'll see.
I'm sure you'll get some better opinions here than mine. That's cool, I'm just a gas racer doing some winter indoor. I don't know much about electric. Just letting you know you can have tons of fun with the old "run what ya brung" stuff too.
