Radio choice is a personal thing I guess.


Don't know what batteries your LHS carries, most are OK. Stick with nicads unless your charger can do NiMH reliably.


Ditto motors, most are ok. All depends what you want to do with it.

Just remembered i need a pinion, also whats the best place in AUS to get this items, checked my LHS, the futabaESC was $99, i think it was a model down from the 330 one they had a 230 i think. Already got the Radio, just need an ESC, batt and pinion.

Pinion:You should be able to get pinions from anywhere that at least carries Tamiya, they have some good steel ones.


Battery: From the four I have had the Team Orion 2400mah offers the best punch and runtime.


Motor: Look for say a 17t motor if your bashing, good and speed and runtime, or if your racing go with what class you want to run.

yere i think that the futaba 230 has a 19 turn motor limit, i seen a package on the frontline hobbies website and ther was a deal with that esc as well as the radio equipment pictured above, i think it was under the 2 hundred dollar mark.

a pinion gears the little gear that attach's to the motor, which drives the spur gear. Don't worry, i didn't know anything about electric cars either
