    Personally no. droop suspension setups are for rock crawling. And even then I don't like it. I've tried. But again it's all personal preference.

    Well I had to get it because they don't make the motor you have anymore, or I just can't find it. Anyway I'll let you know how it runs when I get it. And I have the 120a esc. Same one as yours just higher amps. Will that change how it runs at all?

    Not sure. Let us know how it goes. I do know that for the smoothest low speed. Set the timing to low and the start speed/ punch control to the lowest setting. Not sure if the firmware is the same on the other models of the esc. Wish I had the time and money to just try out every possible setup. Lol

    I just want to give some more props to @00whynot and this combo.

    Dropped it in my Tamiya buggy and boy did it wake it up. Even at 2S. This setup out of the box with no tweeting has enough torque torque steer the car onto its roof. (Not a backflip)

    So thankyou for shareing and I'll keep you all posted as to the trail truck setup once I've swapped it across.

    Well got the motor installed. No cogging period as of yet. Works with my hobbyking 100a esc
    Tried a 16t pinion on a 60t spur. Have to lower the pinion. Want to try to go back to stock pinion and spur.

    However it does appear that stock seems a little "limited" right now. I'm hoping for more stock to appear as I want more

    Sky rc, Toro, and a few others have the same. But this is the cheapest. I'm sure it's the exact same.
