Take care of your stuff and it will take care of you. A "quaty" charger, tray and lathe are going to go a long way when it comes to taking care of your all your stuff. I'm not exactly sure what your asking...but for me, I've got:

Integy 16x5 charger/discharger
Integy Octane 20 tray
Cobra lathe

Make sure you get as much radio as you can afford along with a solid steering servo and speed control. Comparing radios like the Helios, M8/M11, and the 3PK is a matter of apples and oranges. All are great radios, however most people become partial to different manufacturers. A fast quality steering servo is a must. The JR 3550 and 3650 (Digital) are ideal choices. Just take your time and get the right equipment the first time. You picked the right class.

You have to equilize the cells durring discharging. The novak idividualy discharges each cell, giving it the most punch possible.

I believe you will need a smaller servo to fit in a 1/12 scale car. A cheap ESC that will handle the motor is one from the Duratrax line of ESC's. They are all under a 100 dollars.

I am using a Novak GT-7 which has no motor limit. This summer I used an LRP IPC Pro-Sport Digital ESC (around $90). It handled my 10x2 with no problems.

As far as batteries, I am running GP 3300's. I have yet to upgrade to more mili-amps. Basically, the higher the amp-hours the more run time. Especially with a hot 10x2.
