Default Buying a pro, questions

I have a couple of questions. I crashed my 500esp upgraded to FBL last fall but I'm just now getting a chance to fix it. Ive decided to just buy a new kit because I broke almost everything I was thinking about just upgrading to the pro and I've found a few places that sell kit only. Will my scorpion 3026-1600 work on this? What is the best pinion? I have an ice 75 so it will be governed. I will also be using the mini V-Bar with this and ds510s with a jr 3500g for tail. Thanks for any help.

The 3226-1600 is doing well on mine with the stock esc at 100 percent flat on an 11t pinion. Some are finding the 12t on a governor works well whereas others have stopped using the cc governor so throttle curves can be used to get more headspeed.

If memory serves, a gentleman had to do some minor modifications to the frame to fit the 3500 because of screw spacing. Might want to do a search on that one. Most are running stock servos with no issues.
