That esc costs $160. Don't waste your money. Go for this one: http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/pro...od=rch-vic1032 and get it while you can because they won't be made anymore. They're IMO the best brushed marine esc's ever made, and backed with outststanding customer service.

Don't get that charger! Please spend a few more dollars and get a GOOD charger, if not you'll get a good one later on and wished you hadn't wasted your money earlier on. I personally use a Triton http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/pro...od=dh-gpmm3153 and love it. Just use a Y harness to charge multiple packs. It does require a 12v dc source but that can be purchased, or made very inexpensively. Most very good chargers are 12v dc.

Don't know about that motor but MHZ carries decent products but they tend to be on the slightly expensive side.
