if you are looking on the cheap for a high power ESC, send me a PM. Got a Speed Passion GT2.0 Pro and Programmer here that I won't be using (switching to all viper in offroad). ESC is powerful enough to be used in 4x4 SCT with 4 pole motors like the HW 3656SD when set right (this is what I used in my daughters SCT410 for a bit). Programmer will let you put whatever sotware you want for blinky or mod racing via connection to the pc.

As for going cheap on a servo, I have found that I like the Airtronics 94358 servos. I have found those used for about $25 and they do .10 transit at 200oz of torque. Its actually what I used in my daughters dex210 and I got it for $25 I believe shipped.

I always like to run drag brake. You can go in deeper into a corner and still be able to make the turn without running wide, and adjust the steering as you need it with the drag brake.

Low grip run 5 or 10%. High grip dirt, go to 15%. Carpet you can use around 20%

What's a good starting point for gearing with stock spur gear on a 10.5 motor ? It's going to be ran on indoor tracks not that big .

And who makes a Alum servo horn that is the same as the stock plastic one ?

You can use the plastic or alum TLR22 horn. But the stock plastic one holds up pretty good too.

Which is the stock spur? I think the original v1 comes with 87T and the v2 comes with 81T.
Normally I prefer to run the 81T spur vs the 87T spur.


Gearing:

8.5T Motor
81T spur + 22T (indoor) 23T (outdoor) or 24T pinon (big track)
87T spur + 24T (indoor) 25T (outdoor)

10.5T Motor
81T spur + 25T (indoor) 26T (outdoor) or 27T pinon (big track)
87T spur + 27T (indoor) 28T (outdoor)

The adjustable ones. I have been testing these since Aug in a few of my cars.
There were available at Tower at the end of Aug. as a few local drivers in my area were able to order them up. I gave them the part number when they saw it on my car during a practice session.

They are a lot stronger than the plastic ones and use the numbered inserts similar to the DEX410 to change the front kick up or anti squat settings. If the inserts get worn out or damaged, its easily replaced. Depending on the adjustment number you use, you can use either the LRC or HRC blocks in the rear. You still need to remove the rear LRC or HRC block to change the inserts but at least you don't need to remove the entire front rear block. Which makes adjustments at the track much quicker. Keep in mind you will also need those hinge pin pivot balls that go into those plastic inserts to make them work.

I don't have the instructions in front of me to tell you what settings are what. But its definitely not the same as the stock settings.
Stock gives you 3, 1.5 and 0 with HRC. -2mm LRC adds 0.2 to each setting
The new part allows for different ranges. You won't get 3, 1.5 and 0, but rather 2+, 2, 1.8, 0.5 or something like that.

I can chime in on the exact settings later when I get home. Or unless someone has it handy with him.

I'm having a bad binding issue with the gear box on the V2 version . Seems like when i tighten up the screws on the top not bottom of the gearbox it binds up the top shaft when it's against the motor plate ? It's the right size screws and I'm not over tighting them .

The bearing that goes into the support mounting piece that snaps onto the gear box is not flush it won't though when i stick the top shaft spacer in .
