Try Castle for 1/8 water resistant esc. Bit overkill as they are 2-6s. Axial AE2 is good for 3s with ext bec and can be programmed with Castle link/software. Also has drag brake feature.

I run Hitec HS7955TG servo with SCX10, awesome.

I've read a lot of negative posts about Savox and 3r winch, but they could be silly people abusing them?

Looks great mate, keep up the good work.

I still have A LOT of wiring to figure out how to stow but I took it for a spin tonight!

The audio card and speaker are AWESOME! and loud. I had to stop working on it so everyone here can sleep.

The lighting is cool. The headlamps turn on and off with the 3rd ch plugged to the light module. The signals flash when the steering is turned and the backup lights function.

Wow it's been difficult fitting all that gear into my MC8. I'm now putting the finishing touches on it. Here's some video more video and pics to come.

Look'n good. Love the realistic look of the body panels and the sound system is dialed. Thanks for posting!

Thanx!

I've been trying to get some onboard footage but I've found it difficult to access my GoPro. As a bit of "dumb luck" I knocked out the front wind screen but I can now operate the camera easier.

I went to Wally World (Walmart) and bought a convexed bicycle mirror and cut all three mirrors from the one. Then glued them using hot glue and flat black painted the edges to blend them in

I towed my 4 year old son's Tamiya CC01 Jeep into the house after he drained his battery and the MC8 jerked it around like a rag doll over some concrete curbs and a threshold
