My brother was looking to build a rally, and being the older, but not necessarily wiser one, decided, before he jumped the gun and bought it, I would build one. And the fact I kinda want a drifter.

Just a 1/16 VXL system

Wheels- drift and normal, in that order

Do I need gearing for a roller?
What batteries? (NIMH please, getting lipos later)
What tx/rx should I use?
