buy a brushed/bl speedo and a couple brushed motors as well as one 13.5 bl motor.

Stay ahead of the curve and go with an Mi3.

9550 futaba servo.

easy coach! Didn't even break a sweat!

Dude, fro boy. Why do you even need to ask on here? I'll let you take a look at my car and you'll be able to see what you need to buy.

I know what you're doing. Problem is in the on road forum you're going to get 5 people who run each different car saying their car is the best.
