Also are they stickers attached to the outside of the body (after painting), or are they decals attached to the body from the inside (before painting)? Lastly, if you could PM the info, I'd greatly appreciate it.
meow that's hot.

Opinions

For ESC in USGT are you using a higher amp esc? I'm using a r1 80amp considering 160a or Michmore.

80 amp is just fine for 21.5. You will not see a speed advantage when moving to a 160.

so funny a well respected driver at my track says you will and I agree with you. I just don't see a 21.5 drawing that much

On resistance matters. On resistance and maximum current capacity are only tangentially related. There was a time... where r/c car action actually tested that sort of thing.

I mounted an amp meter in a VTA car once to evaluate the need for higher "C" rating on batteries. I did dead stop burn outs on the street and also had it in the car for practice laps. Result was about 12 amp average draw on the track and about 22 amp draw peak for hard acceleration from a dead stop. I don't remember my gearing at the time but it was probably between 3.3 and 3.8 FDR. Figure about 15% more draw for a 21.5 and you would be under 14 amps average on the track and just over 25 amps peak. So no need for a higher rated speed control based on amperage.

HOWEVER, higher rated speed controls tend to have lower internal resistance and less voltage drop. So basing your decision on a lower voltage drop rather than the amperage rating makes more sense. I doubt there is any sort of industry standard for the numbers manufacturers publish about their products. You can use them as guidelines but you would have to setup some sort of controlled experiment to actually compare different speed controls.

I wonder if the lower heat alone is worth it

How much heat do you think there will be? Most of the heat in ESCs I've played with comes from the hilariously crappy BEC vreg. Most of the ESC's I've been in, use a linear vreg. And if we're lucky, it's LDO. Linear regs are tiny little heaters...

I think most higher Amperage ESCs also have higher brake capacity.
