    if they dont actualy start a fire they would burn out,start to smoke and the car would stop running.they would also melt together.

    you need those connectors i suggested.

    that would depend on where i am driving it.the bigger the area the higher you would want to gear it.

    Any of the HPI trucks are good, go for four wheel drive, works a lot better in grass. Just go for a truck that is well known and you can get parts and upgrades easy. Starter box would be a good choice for a beginner, electric start is ok but its something else to diagnose if it doesn't work, plus the one-way is a pain sometimes. Pull start will just piss you off if it's not tuned right.

    Savage comes with reverse? I thought you needed to get a reverse module.

    Your probably right, I was thinking one of their kits or RTRs already had it.

    Is 84/15 a good gear ratio? Or is there a better combination?

    the motor wires you can solder right to the motor.you have to cut the plugs off of the batteries and solder the new ones on.also cut the plug off of the Streak and solder the new plugs on.make sure you solder the red plug to the red wire and black plug to the black wire.
