Werks B5 with a 2057 pipe! best combination ever! it will not have any trouble whats so ever keeping up with the novarossis and OS. might even outrun them. it has crazy top end speed and lots of low end. and with the 2057 im getting over 10 min runtime in my buggy. for servos i would go with hitec 7955tg's. my personal preference.

Thats the exact same engine, pipe, and servo set up I am using and I love it.

I use a mugen starter box,x-ray makes 1 that looks just like the mugen.Normal metric drivers 1.5,2.0,2.5 & nut drivers or the cool hudy multi wrench but I dont think that comes with the kits anymore.I believe 5.5mm is the most common one I think.I believe the tie rods are 4,5, & a 3mm.What you have from other cars should bostly work.

Dont swap out anything till you run it then maybe o-rings if they leak & make sure you build exactly like the instructions say. I do use the x-ray alum hinge pin holders but mostly their set to stock alignment,I also use an active diff & 41 tooth front diff gear & TTR brake rotors.The stock car is really good & needs nothing except for small feel things to make it yours & the setup book it comes with will be your best friend at the track,& time to try setup changes.

Most important thing is to use the book & try to tune,dont just use somene elses setup.This car responds very well to changes,use them.
