If you're new to racing the stock set up will drive the easiest. It won't spin out when you get on the throttle. If you find you need more steering the manual will help. I use the long wheelbase setting, set front ride height lower than rear by 1mm and moved the front shocks to the inside hole on the arm. But each driver likes something different.

Any servo will work. For control find a servo with around .15 on speed for throttle. A faster servo will make the truck more reactive. Too fast of a servo for throttle and steering could make the truck hard to drive. For steering find a servo with around 100oz-in. Again, to keep the truck in control find something around .15. A faster servo will make the truck more reactive.

Each person likes there own feel so it's hard to say get XXXX servo or YYYY servo. Someone will always disagree with what you suggest. Hope this helps get you started. For now I have a Hitec 645MG for throttle and I don't like it. But I'm used to the very reactive 8th scale cars, so I'd like more speed from that servo. For steering I have an Airtronics 357 that I bought used from a friend for $50. The speed is great to me cause I like the vehicles to react as soon I move the trigger or wheel.
