I think you have it all covered, just as a matter of convenience, i would add a 2S balance lead extension, they are generally too short to get out of the lipo bag.

Make sure your local track actually races 21.5 blinky sedan. Usually 21.5 motors are used in VTA, f1, or GT. it'd be a shame to buy that motor combo and then have to purchase a new motor to run in a class.

Plus avoid the Reventons like a plague, they have so many issues and are the only esc where you have to cut a sensor cable wire with certain brands of motors. That's why they are being sold so cheap.

With the Hobbywing motors for 21.5 blinky you'll want to start out with a roll out around the 62-65mm mark and then either increase it or decrease depending on the size & layout of the track. The Hobbywing 21.5 motors are a low revving motor but have a lot of torque to pull the high roll outs.

Cheers
Rob.

What are you referring to here gearing?

In a way yes, rollout is the distance the car travels in one revolution of the motor, you use this figure in calculating the gearing to use, it is used more in foam tire racing where the tires change diameter as they wear. But can also be used when changing brands or even batches of rubber tires, which might be slightly different diameters.

Tire Circumference x Transmission Ratio x (Spur x Pinion) = Final Drive Ratio or Rollout.

What you are attempting to do, is always keep the rollout/fdr constant, which means changing pinions as the tires wear.

Yes, or if you prefer to know what "FDR" to start at, starting at 3.3 would be a good point to begin.

There's some Apps both for Iphone & Android out there that allow you to easily calculate the FDR or Roll Out. You would need to know your cars internal ratio, spur gear size, pinion gear size and the outside diameter of your tires.

When trying out a new motor or combo it's always a good idea to run if for a minute or so and check the temperature of the motor. If the motor is getting very warm then you may need to put a smaller pinion gear on the motor & test again.

Am not sure what the internal ratio of a Mi5 is nor the constraints of the sizes of the spur & pinion gears that can be used in that car. It may be a good idea to see if anyone else has one and try and find out how small or big the gears that can be used in the car.

The club stock is the more reliable esc of the Reventon series as it relies more on the hardware of the esc rather then the software of the Pro, R & S versions.
