Got my electric up and running after managing to ignite my ESC on my first event out. Got a cheap hoppywing 1800kv combo installed and took it to the track. I loved the way it handled. Since my original motor was massively overpowered the car was set up to calm down the bottom end (including 3.5deg toe).
The car was so stable but lacking a little bit of steering; which would have been much better if I had my rear toe inserts with me.

What diff setups are people using? Similar to the nitro version?

My diff setup are: 4-3-2. Steering is incredible. rr insert:3,rr-fr:2 up.
This is what I'm using in my nitro buggy as well.

I'm building this now. trying to figure out what motor and esc to get. Is a sensorless castle mamba 2650kv too much or should I get a Tekin 2050kv? also, is there a reason the kit says use the plastic spur gear? why not use the metal spur? thanks

2650Kv is way too much heat and short runtime.
Stay around 2000, and if you want Tekin, a 1900kv is excellent. Just gear it to the speed you want.
(Lower kv means less heat, more torque and longer run times.)

Hobbywing make some cheap and good combos too...

Plastic spur is just an option on some e-buggies, makes less noise.
I prefer steel in my Mugens.

so what gearing for this thing with a 4S & 2200kv castle? I'm thinking 15/46 or 16/46? it's for a pretty fast loose clay track..?

I have a 1900kv and use a 15t.

A friend has the 2200 HW and runs 12-14t depending on the track

Many shock brands would never leak when assembled properly.
By judging at what pro's from various brands have been running, consensus re: best shocks currently would point to Kyosho.
