Default RC8e Help

Well, I am selling everything. All I have is a RC8e left. I have a DS1015 servo, futaba FM receiver R153F, and a Venileon Brushless system in the box. I can't order parts for a while. I can't even get to them where I am at for a few months. Should I do it?

Should I put the Venileon in with the Futaba? I need RC. Some people say yeah! Some say No! I dunno... let me know. I want to use what I have right now until I can get back in 3 months from work.

If you put a VXL system in an RC8e it won't last through a single set of lipos. Way too much motor, not 4S capable, and too heavy of a vehicle.

Any other opinions on this? Can you run a Novak HV 5.5 with the VXL on the RC8e?

I know this is amazingly super general, but what are some good general purpose out-door racing tires? AKA City Blocks(medium), Pro-Line Hole Shots(m3), JConcepts Subcultures(not sure), Pro-Line Calibers(m3) or ????

I just trying to get an idea of what tire works almost anywhere, so I at least have a something in the case I can't get what is be used at any particular track.
