What size is the motor ?

What ESC are you planning to use ?

What voltage do you plan to run (number of cells) ?

What speed do you want ?

Cheers

all you need is a 5mm 32p pinon. I like novak and castle pinons, but Robinson Racing makes good ones as well called the absolute. the gears may also be called mod .8.

Nothing is needed to be done to the plate. If you have a center diff it needs to be replaced with the slipper and you need to run it very tight.

I am assuming you are going to run a 4s. If so you need the traxxas battery expansion kit. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXUVZ8
With that you will be able to run a 4s battery or two 2s packs. I use that kit to run a single 2s 10000mah battery(same size as a 4s) and works great.

If your running a Mamba Monster esc or the hpi re-branded MM traxxas makes a Mamba Monster mount.

No mods needed. The motor will bolt right to the stock plate. As stated above you will need a 5mm 32p pinion.
You can't understand cuz you're listening too slow.

Here is the esc mounting plate. The esc you posted is just a re-branded mamba monster. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXXFD3&P=7

As far as the motor plate and mount the stock one will work without any mods. But you may want to upgrade the motor mount to one like this. http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ount-w-Bearing
it has a larger bearing for cooler running.
As far as pinons here is a list for you, its not complete. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...5MM+&search=Go

I would use a pinon of 14-16t to start with.

Your driveshafts will turn to butter with that much power. Pick up some teknos or mips at least for the rear.

It's not necessarily a must ,but The REVO slipper clutch upgrade really helps keep the clutch cooler with all that added power. The fiber ones tend to burn up.
