Looking for recommended electronics and body to run in 17.5 touring car class. Needs to be ROAR approved. Any suggestions?

Viper VTX10 and Reedy Mach 2. My favorite body was the Protoform R9.

+5 for a Hobbywing Justock ESC: http://www.falconsekido.com/products...c-esc-for-1-10

For motor, that all depends. Does your club have any rules for motor brand? If not, you have plenty to choose from. I would make sure to get a sensored motor, do not get a sensorless for racing. If I were shopping for a new 17.5 for TC right now, I'd be looking at the Trinity Killshot, but that's just my brand preference
