JustWill75- I have not tried the Duo motor although I hear they are good. I have used both LRP and Orion motors and like the powerband and brakes of the Orion the best. With the battery technology thats out right now I am looking at drivability and feel as opposed to all out power

Thanks again Matt. I see Dustin was using the Orion motor also. Was he running a LRP speed controller?

Have you run any 17.5 motor set ups yet in the 22? If so what do you like the best?

I have both. The JR is in my 8th scale and love it. It is an incredible servo but for a 2wd buggy I would save the $60 bucks. I have the s6040 in all my 10th scale cars. You can almost get another S6040 for the price of the JR to keep a spare around!
I see what youre saying. I have a JR from my XXX-S but if it's to much. Ill get the Spektrum.

Default Sensor wire

Curious,
If you were to run that new 96 mm Battery, and mount your speed control between the servo and battery. Would the Sensor wire reach that far?

I'd like to see a picture...

I think the earlier advice assumed that you did not already have a servo to use. There's no reason not to use your JR servo if you already have it and aren't using it. You can't really overpower the steering. A strong servo (metal gears) is important in this car, there is no servo saver.

Yeah if you already have the JR it will be a GREAT servo for this car. If you are looking for electronics for this car though I would save the money on this car and get the spektrum. For the 8th scale though spektrums are not recommended so I went JR and am very happy with it.
