    While the 2 pole motor won't be as notchy as the 4 pole it should still have some resistance.

    Shock caps have never been an issue for the GTR's, only the Ultra's; no aluminum caps will be necessary unless your going for the aesthetics.

    I'd go to a 20 tooth pinion and 50 tooth spur to start with.
    Both my 2400 Castle's are in 2wd's right now and geared 23/56 and the other 22/47; both are monsters with that motor.
