    I know nothing about the Tacon Motors. But if you can save a little more like $104. Get the Castle Sidewinder SC/3800kv combo. You will need a lipo to run it as well. And its rated for 2s only. But...

    Go with the T-Bone. You will never buy another wheelie bar. I recommend drilling a couple holes thru the T Bar into the bumper to hold it together better. Only issue with the Tbone is the plastic...

    With the 21tm the stock pipe is a waist of time. Stick with the THS pipe. You would be hard pressed to find a Buku. If you can find a Buku Brass/kevlar clutch that wold be worth adding.

    For grass I have found Badlands to be excellent and Gladiators to be a close 2nd. I do prefer the Badlands SC tires over 2.2 or the 2.8s. Smaller diameter to the SC tires and less swelling. Also...

    Kimbrough is probably one of the most durable plastic servo savers you can get. Far better than stock. Not as good as HR. But holds up very well. More than sufficient for the Pede. IMO.
