    Yeah just replace them every once in while. Usually once they become gritty they are toast.

    Solar D771... fast, plenty of torque, and durable. You'd have to either run a straight servo horn or get a stronger servo saver like the kimbrough 124 though. The stock white servo saver isn't strong...

    These things are made to be driven hard and if they break they break. Dollar Hobbyz is great for stocking up on spare parts without breaking the bank.

    3 in 1 is just an all purpose oil... it will work just fine for lubing a 12t. Just use a drop though, if you get it all over the place it will just attract more dirt.

    I think you'll be happy with the sidewinder. It's not the most powerful combo, but its a workhorse. I've had one in my son's Rustler for the last year and he hasn't managed to destroy it yet, lol....

    Solar also makes decent cheap servos. The d771 is about 25 bucks after shipping, plus it has metal gears. I wouldn't even hesitate to run...

    No, brushless motors are pretty robust. Just set your slipper clutch so it has a little slip in it when taking off to save wear on your drivetrain. If its set tight (1/4 turn or less usually) you'll...

    Partially true I suppose. An oiled bearing will probably have better performance, but get burned up pretty quick because oil...

    MMP/3800 is a beast of a combo, but the MMP isn't waterproof so keep that in mind.

    The 380 and Castle 3800 both spin pretty freely. But yeah, that is one notchy motor. Spins about as hard by hand as my Castle 2200kv. As long as runs ok there shoudn't be any issue though.
