Yeah they did a good job with that speedo. Nice and smooth and small and gets the job done. Great for spec racing but not rated for the jump to mod. Only real downfall of that ESC.

Thanks for the info Frank. The order shipped before I saw your post and could cancel.
Tried to call AMAIN so they could fix the issue on their site as I have seen a few people that have ordered and had same issue, but got no where with them. All that said,
This Truck ROCKS!

Maybe one the TLR guys sees this and can update the blog but Michael Losi's winning stock truck setup from the Cactus Classic is a 22 stock buggy pdf.

That would all depend on what class your going to raceit in and what kind of track you will race it at. That is if you are going to race it...

What class? Stock or mod?
Kind of track? Outdoor low bite loose or indoor clay really high bite?

yes I am gonna race it and the track is indoors normally high bite, and I'm new to this hole stock/mod thing cause I normally race 1/8 4wd nitro. I mainly bought the truck cause everyone at the track says if u can drive this good then 1/8 4wd will be no problem. I want to become a better all-around racer. And the wife has shown some interest in learning to drive it. So anybody with anything else they would like to share cause I'm open??

Ok, indoor high bite will have several good setups for you here- http://www.petitrc.com/setup/losi/Se...wentyTwoT.html
Ryan Dunfords setup would be a good starting point.
I would suggest stock class for a starting point. When you get the setup hammered out then maybe mod later on down the road, that is IF your track has a mod truck class (very funn class!)

Best electronics is highly individual... I myself love Tekin esc's but the brushless rc 120a esc (http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...0amp-escs.html) will be my next one I buy, they are around $50 so the price is nice! Motor will be dependent on what is available around you and what your track runs in stock. Most run 17.5t brushless and most 17.5t motors are very comparable performance wise, you cant go wrong with the bigger manufacturers (lrp,tekin,novak,trinity, and the likes). Servo will also be the same thing, it all depends on your budget.
