No, you cannot get a 2.5k resistor that I am aware of, take a look at your local electronics shop or online and find the closest value you can to what you need.

micro brushed car ESC form a servo board

Great Topic
Would like to give it a try but there are two more things that are missing:

1) What would be the maximum voltage handled (2S LiPo possible?),
2) What would be the maximum Amps handled by this micro ESC and if it's too low how and where to insert some FET's?

I'm trying to use this for an Iwaver 02m (1/24 car) modded for 2.4GHz

Thanks

1) Depends on the servo you use, most will accept a voltage of 2S.

2) Again, depends on your servo, could be a few amps.

If you were wanting to use this for a 1/24 car I would advise against it, it's a fairly large scale compared with what this tutorial was designed for, a 1/24 scale motor could be pulling a fair amount of power.

It is hard to find such small ESCs like in the tutorial, however have a look on eBay and I'm sure you'll find a few listings for new brushed ESCs that will fit fine with your scale.

Do you need any resistors or does it work with out them?

Is there a way to avoid reverse?
I would like to use it as a PWM-Analog converter.
So I could translate servo signal to analog voltage from 0v to 5v.
