What would be a better choice for a stock 4x4 buggy class as far as esc goes?

Novak GTB2 or the Speed Passion esc that comes with the 10.5T combo (Citrix I think) ??

Just ordered a new DEX410v3 for indoors this winter. Debated between this and a B44.1. I've had B44's in the past, and the ball diffs/plastic gears sucked then and still suck now. And it was a PITA to get to the gears/diffs for repairs.

I'll try those. Just ordered a set.

I have both skid and side weights.

Tonyd had them on his car last time we were racing with him. He said they gave less (smoother) entry steering and more steering on exit. His car looked very good on the track.

Any advantages to running a shorty pack vs. normal saddle packs, other than having only 1 battery brick to deal with? Well, less battery weight, but ppl are adding rear weight anyway.

Only advantage I can think of is if your sharing shorties with your DEX210. A shorty in this buggy will make it very edgy. Everybody is adding weight to the rear with the saddles as it is. Your gonna have to add alot more ballast to keep the rear planted. Not worth it in my opinion.

I like the Tresrey rear weight also. I did away with the skid and use flat head screws in the back. Now everything back there is nice and flush like the rest of the chassis.

I am curious, on the newer cars the rear diff hoop was upgraded. Does it still break, or are people just changing it for piece of mind.

I have opted to forgo the servo saver all together. By using the right side post and arm from the DESC you will have more room to get the servo wire routed with out damaging it. Just DO NOT use a sissy servo.

Anyone run a viper esc in their buggy? What class are you running and are you having temp problems? Im thinking about the esc but not sure about the low air flow being a problem with an esc without a fan. I always want a fan on a 4wd running mod and high grip
