I have been working on this! Trying to push to get some available through other vendors.

Right now this is about all: http://rcpcrawlers.com/product.php?p...age=1&featured

I haven't tested them personally and am not a huge fan of stainless in that location. They are about as good as available stateside though.

Ahh yeah, You rock! gonna order now. I will give feed back. Good or not. Thanks Bro. Also was thinking of switching to Futaba from spektrum. Was thinking the 4PL. Not doing dig or rear steer on the Wraith. However in the future as I become more involved in crawling. I would want those possibilities. 4PL would be suitable. Or is the 4PK the choice one.

The 4PL will do you fine! The 4PK really shines for the hardcore MOA competition guys, no need for it with the Wraith really. You will save yourself a lot of money on the radio and RX's by going with the 4PL.

Thanks, yeah I just have never used them so I have a hard time recommending them. I can't say I really heard much about them good or bad.

I don't follow spectrum products but if the servo is under 300 oz/in then you may be alright. It's usually best to run a BEC still but you can try without it.

its 306 oz/in. its a great servo, but uses some juice. i have the cc bec, just wondering if i could get rid on one switch.

learning all this from this forum has helped me a great deal. my buggy is so fun that 2 of my freinds are looking at getting crawlers because of it.

You may be alright without a BEC but I'd keep the idea open.

No, it's just a useless ESC for a crawler or even trail truck. Not a good choice for this truck.

The motor is alright but brushless should be sensored in a crawler. If you want reliable waterproof, go brushed.
