Question Post your Exo setup

Hi, since I'm pondering the purchase of an Axial Exo buggy I thought it would be handy to have a topic such as this to see which are the most popular motor / ESC combos, servos, etc.

For starters just copy the template below and fill in the blanks. If you want you can write about any problems or glitches you've met along the way with your particular setup or any other notes which might help a future owner.

Thanks!

ESC: Hobbyking 100A
Servo: Blue Bird BMS-621MG
BEC: Built into ESC
Radio: Kyosho(made by futaba?) KT-201

Half of the setup is cheap as it can get, yet works like a charm for me. For the radio and motor I've gone for the more expensive route, since they don't break so often for me.

This is a great thread! Considering I have no idea really what I'm doing, this gives me a ball park idea of what I'm looking for. I guess I won't be needing my Hitec 7950TH to turn my buggy

Check some of the pictures in my thread^^ I will post some more detailed pics later today. But I basically just drilled out the upper hole on the cap and used an axial ball end insert, sort of like the power strokes.

Motor: Speed Passion Silver Arrow V10 3.5T

ESC: Hobbywing SCT Pro 120A (current) and a MMP (in the past as it burned)

Servo: Ace DS1015

BEC: none

Receiver: Spektrum SR3000

Changed from a MMP to a Hobbywing SCT Pro and it was like night and day.....
The Hobbywing works soooooo much better , more power throughout the rev range and much smoother.
The SCT Pro let's the Exo crawl around where the MMP would just start to stutter.

Upgraded with a bunch of STRC part where it matters.
