Default Planning a new truggy build!!!

How's it going guys.. I'm planning a new truggy build and here is what I plan on going with so far..

Vehicle: Mugen MBX7T when it releases.
Engine/pipe: CRE Novarossi 28-7 with JP2
Radio system: Airtronics MT-4 with RX461
Servos: steering: http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...o-High-Voltage throttle/brake: http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...o-High-Voltage
rx battery pack: I don't know.. I've posted questions about this in the radio forum.. do I need a voltage regulator with a lipo pack if the rx and servos are high voltage? I've heard that its not needed but I've also read that its required with this battery pack http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...-Balancer-Plug

anyways what do you guys think so far?? any advice or feedback??

I answered your battery question on the other thread, but no, you wont need a regulator.

Everything else looks fine.

Are you planning on just bashing or racing. If you are just bashing, than the Nova 28 is great. If you are racing, get a 21. Plenty of power and better fuel mileage. Just an opinion though. Get in on the CRE thread and ask John or Neal for their insight.

I would also looking at using another pipe. JP's are good, but the Novas like specific pipes to run at their best.

Jerm, thank you sir for your feedback.. Yes I plan on racing and I am aware of the importance of fuel mileage but thank you for addressing the very important point I have already been in contact with Neil and he has advised me that the JP2 should work quite well with the 28-7.. thanks again for the feedback

You say the jp2 "should work well". Why not get a pipe that we all "know works well" with that nova?

I would get a P5xlt or one of the Fusion engines an X7 would be perfect for
that truggy. .28's are not really needed and get poor runtime compared to
a .21. You should not need a regulator with that pack or servos and the
Airtronics RX will be fine on straight LiPo voltage.
