You are going to get a lot of different answers to your question, the number one thing is how much money do you want to spend? For me, I was new to carpet racing last year and chose to buy a couple of used KSG Gen2 chassis's, a used Novak Havoc 1S ESC and a used Novak 17.5SS motor, around here you have to run a spec battery in the truck class, you will even find the tires you need used but in very useable condition. All of these items were bought off of this forum for a very reasonable price, my suggestion to you is check with the track you are going to run and see what the other racers are using, you will find that most everybody will be very helpful in answering your questions.
