    I would go with a 16/83 gear set. you could go up to an 86t spur if you want more torque. That should keep you cool enough for off-road use.

    any sensorless brushless esc will work
    but i reccomend using 1 that can handle at least 65 amps. I have rea about ppl running a 35 amp esc but IMO thats a little light for a basher truck.

    I don't believe an 8cell will fit stock, tower hobbies sells the battery tray expansion kit for like $6. Then you can go nuts and fit just about anything you want in there.
