Default 1/8 Scale AE 8.2e Setup

Hi everyone, I just purchased an Factory Team Associated 1/8 Scale kit.
I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to if I went over-board or not enough on the parts I purchased. Thank you in advance.

you got to high of a kv motor for your voltage you should have gotten something in the 1700-2000 range the 2650kv is more of a 3s motor.

Agreed with the above poster. I've ran mine with the Castle 2650, Castle 2200, and now the HW 1800. Out of all three the HW is BY FAR the best setup I've had. Anything over 2000kv is too much for 4s in my opinion. If you're racing outdoors on BIG tracks, then you might be fine, but other than that you don't need that much motor. I think if you're running indoors and outdoors a good compromise is something around 2000kv. Indoors only I would go for 1900kv or less for sure.

I run a castle 2650 on 4cel in my 8.2E indoors and out and it works just fine. 2650 is the only motor Castle has and recommends for 8th scale buggy. The 2200 is a much longer can with much more torque and is designed for Truggy and M/T. I do use different gearing indoors and out and cut power back a little indoors, the rest of it is still thottle control.
The stock setup in the manual works well. I recently went to the 10 hole pistons 1.3 and the Kyosho Lt Blue springs front and rear. It tightned up the loose rear end a lot. 30 wt rear 40 wt front.
associated 89459 pistons
IS106-814 rears
IF350-714 fronts
That has been working great indoor, I will find out how it works outdoor this Sunday. I ran the stock pistons and silver springs last year outdoor.

Thank all of you for taking the time to respond. I'm taking all this into consideration. I went with the 2650 Motor because I wanted the ability to customize different settings for my buggy. The battery was recommended to me by the dealer in which I bought the car from. I asked if I should run anything else and they were so adamant about using that specific battery; considering the cost 189.00 a piece I think they were more interested in the money. I do have the ability to return so I'm in the process of thinking what a better bet would be for me either lover KV and higher voltage lipo or higher kv and lower voltage. What do you guys think of the servo I bought?
