TT01R build, help confirm parts, I am a newb

I tried doing as much research/search as possible so bare with me. Been reading the forum for the past 4hrs. I found towerhobbies.com very use full to finding all my parts:

These things I am sure of(should be fine):

1. Tamiya Racing Car TT-01R Chassis Kit
2. HPI Lotus Elise 2000 Body 190mm
3. Novak XRS Reversible Sport ESC

This part I am not sure if I need anything else. Do i need any of those radio crystals or is this everything?
4. Futaba 2PH 2-Channel AM/1 S3003 Servo 79
5. Sanyo AA Alkaline Battery (8)

Now for the battery? I figured the 4200 would hold the longest charge and last longer. Please confirm or should i order 2 3000's so I always have a full battery ready?

6. DuraTrax 6-Cell 7.2V DTX4200 NiMH Stick Standard

Does this charge come with all the plugs? I cant seem to find any pics of the cords so it makes me think its missing something? Will I be able to charge the battery above without needing anything?

7. DuraTrax Piranha AC/DC Digital Peak Charger NiCd/NiMH

Am I missing anything? What can you guys recommend? I plan to mess around on the road/streets drifting around.

Thanks,
Ryan

when u buy the radio, check that it should come with a pair of crystal (for receiver & transmitter).

4200 batts are good. Most stick packs comes with white Tamiya plug. But later, u will want to change to Deans plugs.

well i made some changes..
New radio:
2PL FM R153F 1 S3003 75 79
https://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...I=LXNHS279&P=0

Different brand battery:
SMC IB4200 6-Cell 4200mAh NiMH Stick Pack
seems to be a better brand from readings, plus there cheaper by 5$

and a better charger
DuraTrax IntelliPeak AC/DC Pulse Charger

I'm glad you switched batteries.

Make sure that the charger you picked can charge more than 3.5A on AC!
