Default SC10 2wd motor/esc

Hi everyone. I have a Team Associated SC10 RS 2wd. I am looking for your opinions on what sensored/brushless esc/motor combo you would recomend for racing in the mod class. Money is not a factor here i have no problem spending $300 to $400. If there are other upgrades you would recomend feel free to do so.

Indoor? Outdoor? clay, loose loam? without a description of the track its
tough to give advice. A Tekin RS and 8.5 motor will handle just about
as wide a range of track conditions as possible so that would be a safe
bet. Get the HotWire also.

I would be racing mod indoors on clay. I currently have a viper 8.5 combo that I plan on giving my wife for her b4.1. I have been kind of set on the tekin 8.5 with the hotwire, but as a newbie I wanted to hear your opinions. I am also wanting advice on other parts I should upgrade to get race ready, so far I have upgraded the servo and have a airtronics m12. I really appreciate any advice yo all have.

get Avid or AE alloy hexs are way better than plastic as they dont get stuck in the wheel or fall off when wheel is not on, also get the alloy AE or B44 plastic rear hubs with the larger outer bearing (dont forget the shorter crush tube also) and get CVA's Ae brand for the rear, the factory team ones they fit the sc10 and the t4.1 factory team with the clips and dont use the set screw for the pin. Also solid pins for behind the hexs, get the factory team AE ones, Also bearings instead of the brass bushings for the steering rack . Sorry i dont have part numbers, ask in the sc10 thread if u need help with that

These are all must haves in my opinion for the sc10RS

If money is not an object, I would get what ever you think looks the best of the major brands. You should be happy with any of them. I would also check out the v3 hobbywing @ http://www.falconsekido.com/ I just got one of there combos for my SCTE and absolutely love it.

I have decided to get a Tekin rs motor/esc combo but what type of motor should I get? I run a 8.5 viper but I noticed on the team assosiated spec sheets, that most of them run a 7.5. All opinions welcome, Thank you.
