Running stock your only going to use around 1000ma per run.

The Kyosho is a good choice for PRCR, parts and support are great.

You are also going to need some tires and a body if you get the SC-R as it doesn't come with any.

Does PRCR have AC power available? I was considering getting the hyperion or ProTek with a Power Supply or looking for a AC/DC charger

Do you happen to know what most people run for tires at PRCR?

Yes, plenty of AC outlets available.

For tires most people are running the AKA wishbones in SS compound but for the Rockstar SCT series I think there is going to be a spec tire, the AKA enduro I believe.

You should go down there Friday night or Saturday and check out the racing and see what they got at the shop.

(Not sure what servo, can I run a futaba with the airtronics TX/RX?
I think thats a real nice setup you went with there. I would add a nice inexpensive Hitec servo like the 965, its fast and has more than enough torque for 1/10 scale racing. Ive never tried the Savox servos but i see amain is carrying them now and there are some very aggressively priced servos with monster specs, maybe worth a try.

Here is how to get up and running in half of your budget. I am doing the same thing as you. I haven't raced for a few years and I'm starting with a short course truck. The kyosho parts a few and far between here in the east too...so I went with an AE SC10. The parts are available everywhere and the Kyosho and AE look very similar. Here is my breakdown on costs:

AE SC10 Kit 175
Spectrum DX3e 99
Hobby Wing 50a ESC 54
Hobby Wing 17.5 motor 40
Gens Ace 30c 2s 4000 54 (27 each...I bought two)
Traxxas 2075 sevo 20
Thunder T6 Charger 35


Total 477

I still have a dc power supply so I'm using it. I have been using the hobbywing esc's in my heli's (trex 450's) and they work great. As far as I can see...there is nothing second rate. The servo has 120 oz of torque and has .17 response. I am going to run in a 17.5 brushless class which was designed at our locat track as a semi-spec class. I just bought the kit yesterday and put it together and it is a great kit. I can't wait to get it up and running.
