I just read all 6 pages and think the FAQ are great for a newbie like me.

I'm trying to revive my old kyosho mini inferno half eight after toasting the electronics in it several years ago

Since this model the receiver/esc/steering servo control was all in one, everything has to be changed,

already got a new micro servo, and now I'm looking for the esc and receiver solution. esc I'm thinking of a cheap brushless esc/motor comb and here resides doubt one. I see combos with 4200 and 7200 motors. wich is the right one? I don't need a super fast car since is for my son play on dirt but too much torque could strip the diffs right?

on the receiver since the original one was 27mhz I'm thinking of a new cheap 2.4ghz remote and receiver instead of buying and old 27mhz receiver.

second doubt. batteries. mini inferno runs on 8 cell nimh saddle pack. all I see is using 7.2v nimh ou 11.1 lipo. can I run my old 9.6 nimh saddle pack?

thanks in advance

A 4200 kv motor on 2S LiPo would be a good starting point. You could also run on NiMh, like 6 cell, but it will limit performance. A LiPo gives a more equal performance throughout the entire battery, where the NiMh will be faster in the first minutes, but sag more, as it gets depleted.

I would add onto the battery section. A talk about voltage. Just to help clear up what it does for your motor and draw in terms of performance with a 7.4v 2s or 11.1v. 3s. Etc.
