New Setup - 04.07.2016, 05:22 PM

Hi guys this is my first post here, I need some help with my new setup.
I want to setup a 1/5 scale baja truck for drag racing 132' using the conversion kit. Can anyone tell me what kind of amps i can expect to see on 12s using a 600kv motor? I am trying to figure out which ESC and pinion and spur gear I am gonna need, thanks.

Jay

Sounds good to me!
But note that I am basing my opinion on brands, not specs since I do not know that, sorry!

Last night was the first time I was able to put the power to it, and it pretty much spun the tires the whole 132'!!! So now to tune it for traction...
