    That is a great price for a rig

    I would use the SideWinder over the Rooster especially if you are planning on using Lipo batteries. It is a good idea to get an ESC with a low voltage cut-off so you don't toast a Lipo, the SideWinder has one built in and with the Castle Link you can change settings like drag brake, etc. a 55T motor will work fine, but for more wheel speed you should try a 35T or 45T.

    Read up on Lipo battery usage and what to avoid doing, they are pickier than NiMh or NiCad batteries

    Re: need build advise

    When buying an ESC keep in mind that some run 2s only and some run 2s an 3s. A 2s is 7.4v and a 3s is 11.1v. Tekin makes one but I have no idea how good it is.

    FXR, Sidewinder, Mamba Max all will do 2/3s and will work well...

    Mamba Max are bigger but going cheaper used at the moment...

    Sidewinder, Mamba Max have the benefit of supporting brushless to...

    Sprung, droop, semi droop are all a matter of preference and driving style.
    All work well and each have their own advantages as well as disadvantages.

    Re: need build advise

    Some particulare advice specificaly for the venom... check my build thread, I try to update it as I am tweeking the rig...

    http://www.eparccrawlers.com/forum/v....php?f=20&t=78

    These are the latest updates.

    shocks - Droop in the front with about 7MM limiter on outside of shock
    - 70W Oil in right front and left rear
    - soft Traxas Slash duel rate or similar springs in the rear

    I have custom front and rear servo plates I designed. If you want the sedign PM me.

    I'm running the NOVAK Goat 2S Brushlesss system, I would recomend somthing a little more customizable... don't get me wrong, I like it but I'de like more features than I have.

    Tires - Rovers or Sedonas

    The most important upgrades you can get are the Hot Racing Aluminum Rear Axle lock-out, front C-Hubs and High clearance turn knuckles(go to http://www.ckrccrawlers.com/ for those parts.

    DIG is a must!!!!

    Take you're time with the build... do too quick and you will mess somthing up. I did and had to wait for parts to come in the mail.

    Re: need build advise

    These are the batteries I run
    [ebay:wa9tpemf]320545397370[/ebay:wa9tpemf]
    They come from Hong Kong so it will take about 2 weeks to recieve them but for $9 a pop not bad... also I'ive been checking out the Castle Creations ESC and motor combo's I think I would go with one of them if I had a do over. My Goat is good but the Castle is more customizable and it's cheeper with the 2C & 3C suport...

    I just ordered a Sidewinder micro for my MRC so I'll let you know how it work and a 1/10 esc from them should be compairable. Go to http://www.b-p-p.com they are having an over stock sale, I just to the sidewinder combo for $70 and they have the larger ones like you would need also.

    I get my batteries from hobbypartz.com You just have to change the ends. If you are getting a 3S lipo make sure your esc can handle it.
