You can use almost any tire sauce which is available to you, i.e. Paragon, SXT, Jack the Gripper and etc.
I will usually add 30-SPF suntan lotion after applying tire sauce, which make the traction will last longer for asphalt.

Depends on the tyre. A Jap tyre like UFRA works best with Spider Red or MR33v3 (they're both the same).

Most other tyres work best with CS High or Speedtech.

The best additives are all thin oily additives that soak into the foam easily.

That can depend on big the track is. When I run at Steel City which has approx. 225' straight, I use a 5000mAH battery and have about 40-30% left. A 4000mAH will not finish 5min.

1. Can depend on the conditions. Team purple (F), Pink (R), Orange (R)
2. BSR and Contact
3. BSR directly
4. That depends on the car. Typically Futaba S9650
5. I will let someone else explain this in detail.

5 is quite easy if you know what importance the roll center has in pancars and where it is located. Basically, with a pivot ,the roll-center is in the pivot, with a v-link, the roll-center can be under the car or deep in the ground.

Just to add a few notes to the above.

For the questions on tires: I run GP speed tires, 36 shore rear, with 38 shore fronts (HF38 compound). This works pretty much everywhere, except for dusty conditions.
I start my tires on 58mm diameter. I found that I was actually able to get more usefull lifetime out of the tires this way.

On the differences between a v-link and a traditional link style rear Suspension: for me, the v-link provides more mechanical traction on the rear.
The v-link helps me in low traction conditions. But when traction picks up, I found that both systems can work equally well.

On the question of battery capacity needed for 2s 10.5t, I run shorty batteries (5800, 6000 mah).
This is actually a compromise situation. My car handles better with a shorty battery, but in high traction conditions I have to be careful with runtime.
