I'm not biast to any company, but Hobbywing ESC's, tekin Motors/ESC;s, Tenshock motors, are really reliable.

I can't say the same for novak ESC's and Castle ESC's

I ran my new viper esc this weekend. Didnt try the 5150 motor as i just ran the tenshock 4600 ive been running. I didnt care for the standard profiles in the esc so i borrowed a programmer from a fellow racer and made some changes.....seemed better and i drove pretty well the rest of the day. Only other issue is my lipo dumped at 7 mins so need to figure out some more runtime.....runnin nano 6000's

I run the MMP/Tekin 4600 with zero issues. Very reliable and cool temps.

Anyone getting problems with their bearings?, I was changing the diff oil and noticed 2 of the 4 bearings are already going out, this is after about 12-15 packs, also the outdrives are showing some wear and are being eaten lightly by the drive shafts. (so far I only looked at the rear)

Also what bearings should I replace them with? (brand wise)
I am in Mexico and everything takes two weeks+ to get here, what additional stuff should I get to be ready?

i haven't had any issues with my copperhead 4500 (it is a tester system). it a very nice performer for the money. at least my tester is.

the stock outdrives are made from a metal only slightly harder than butter. you need to buy the HD outdrives and you won't have to worry about them wearing ever again. as for bearings, the avid's that i have seem to be holding up.

Whats wrong with yours? my motor seems to be shot just slips inside the motor with even teh smallest load applied to it.
A fellow racer this weekend was telling me he was having issues w his shutting off on hard landings. Mine worked well this weekend so cant complain....time will tell

I've also been very happy with the R10 in the SCTE.

The Orion R10 Pro has a 160a and 120a favors. The 160a one is super smooth and runs my pro4 4600 with tons of power. The only small drawback is that you have to run a fan, I never ran my RX8 fan.

88 degrees after 5minutes run with a fan, 180 degrees without.

I am thinking about picking up the HD shock bodies and was wondering if they give any performance increase or are they just for looks?

the HD bodies are hard anodized coated for less wear on the inside of the shock body. Limits the wear on the shock pistons as well for smoother operation.
