    It will most definitely affect your power curve. Dropping down to a 3.17 ration will give you much higher top speed / less torque. My guess is that your motor would also get hot at that low of a...

    I used four in the rear and one n the front I think. I would get two packs. I used the stock 60 t at first and monitored temps. But then I put in the 54T to give it more top speed. Either will...

    You would want either a larger spur (don't think one would fit without modification) or a smaller pinion gear. The stock pinion is 10 tooth. Traxxas has a 9 tooth available part#7644. Or if you...
