    Iíve got a Hobbywing 2200kv in my XO1 and it has the same mounting screw locations as the stock Traxxas motor. You should be fine IMHO.

    From a tools perspective, most important (IMHO) are a good quality set of hex drivers. Specifically 1.5mm, 2.0mm and 2.5mm. If youíre buying them in a set, you typically also get a 3.0mm which...

    Exactly.

    I actually bought 85mm limiting straps, but before they arrived, used Velcro strapping I had lying around. Simply wrapped the Velcro under and over the rockers.

    Did you bench test the motor? Pull it away from the spur and carefully spin it up to full speed (wear gloves) to see if it makes the noise while not under any load?

    Yes, it has a screw down cap so you can pretty much tighten it up to the point where it acts as a solid arm ( no servo saver action). Though, why wouldnít you want some protection for the servo?
