Default Ax10 resurrection

So I picked up a modded ax 10 with swx chassis and rc4wd r2d ? trans from a great member here. Picked up a set of stock ax10 side plates from a great member here for $3 and started building a stock scorpion with green links stock shocks and aluminum chubs and knuckles. Left the plastic rear lockouts as they'll be fine and installed a stock trans in it and mip cvd's. Im running a z9100t jr servo with my old dx3.0 (it's old but I love this radio) I'm trying to decide on the motor and esc. I've installed a tekin rs and 17.5 geard 12/87 but I also have a tekin fx-r pro and 45t combo and novak goat 55t combo.
What would you run 55t 2s 45t 2 or 3s or 17.5 2s ? Only ran holmes hobbies revolver sidewinder brushless in one of these before. Well a 5700 kv mmp combo in my last foff. I crawled around the house a little at lunch and the rs seems like it may run warm but the drag brake is incredible and its super smooth. I really just want to build a bulletproof crawler. I know I'll end up getting the rrp steel trans gear soon. If anyone is interested I'll post some pic's of the beast lol.

Looks good! Those OG AX10's were a blast to crawl around with.

Thank you. I do like them better than the new wider ones. I have a ridgecrest I've been working on but I don't like them as much so it may be leaving.
