Default Confused buy the servo choice in my new 5ive.

Confused by the servos in my 5iveT
My T/B servo is a S901T rated for high voltage. specs are [email protected]/[email protected]
My steering servo an S900S is only rated at 6v and its [email protected]
Both are digital and metal gear. Should I switch them around? Or replace the the steering servo with a Hitec 5764MH and run them off a 2s lipo?

You'll notice a huge difference in speed going with a 2S lipo. Killer Rc makes good batteries for this application. And although your steering servo is only 6.0, it'll be just fine at 7.2

The newest 5ive comes with a 7.4 lipo and the same servos...

Mine was packed last month according to the box and it didn't come with a Lipo.

It depends on which model you purchase. The bind-n-drive versions are still using the 6V 3000mAh receiver battery and the new RTR version has the 7.4V 5200mAh LiPo receiver battery.

This is exactly true, they kept the same servos but in the RTR AVC version they now include a LiPo battery which apparently is okay to do with the stock servos. For aftermarket upgrade steering servos the HS-1000SGT servo conversion is the best but expensive. This looks to be a promising stop-gap between "stock" and the big HS-1000SGT. These should hit the market in the next month or so: http://hitecrcd.com/products/servos/...-servo/product

Right now I have an all stock 5ive T. I also have a 30.5 ESP motor I am going to install once the stock motor is done. I am not sure how long they last but I figure I shoulc be able to get a few tanks of gas through the stock engine. I want a pipe that I could use with both engines. One that is somewhat quiet and doesnt blow the exhaust inside the body. WHat would you recommend?

Bartalone silence big bore.

Umm, your stock engine will last a VERY long time. The pipe will wake it up too

This dude is dropping truth all over. You will get great life out of your stock engine - well beyond "a few tanks". The stock mill is actually pretty good once you put a tuned pipe on it. The Bartolone XP pipe will be a great match for both stock or the ESP 30.5cc.
