You can basically forget about doing any precise crawling with that setup. I run it in a Rustler an the slowest it will go is almost 5mph. Being sensorless means lots of low speed cogging and a lack of low speed control. But boy is it going to be fast and hard on the drivetrain.

For crawling my suggestion would be to pick up a Holmes Hobbies Sportmaster 35 Turn and a Castle link you you can run the brushed motor off of your SCT ESC. Gear it somewhere between 14/80 and 16/80 and you ought to be able to do some decent crawling. But it's gonna be rather slow, like just a touch faster than a brisk walk.

Sensored 13.5 is becoming the preferred brushless setup. It is a pretty good mix of speed vs control. Your setup is gonna be good for speed only. You can forget about crawling with it, as stated before, cogging and smooth power delivery will make it near impossible on the sensorless setup.

Shock fluid is more per your taste and what you're doing. I run 40 wt in mine.

Diff grease? It has lockers so there isn't much diff action to tune.

Secrets? Flip your lower shock mounts to lower your stance right off. this drasticly improves handling.

Enjoy your wraith, they are a hoot!
