    I just use a 60amp Hobbywing esc. Most Hobbywing escs will probably be reliable. I like the Quicrun, and the Ezrun. For motor, something from castle should be plenty. I also have a motor from gear shop that works really well. My Bandit runs on some no name 3300kv motor and it hasn't failed me yet. Think most motors will work fine as long as you use it for the right application, with the right gearing. I would try not let it get over 160 degrees. I would also recommend something in the 3000s or 4000s kv range for the Rustler.

    The SC8 would work fine. I have one in a Slash 4x4 and have powered multiple different motors from the 3500 Traxxas to 1/8th scale stuff. Using 2s up to 4s packs. Zero issues.

    I'm almost the same, sv3 and 5700kv 1406. Stupid fast. Even on 2s, it's just incredibly quick.

    I'm installing a sv3 and 5700kv 1406 in my Bandit right now. I hope it doesn't overheat on 3s.

    According to Castle you should be ok with this gearing. Although I personally would stick with 2s.
