    I don't know if they're "Top"s, but I do like to build customs. They're here in the forums, but I'll tell a little about 'em.

    First was the "Sumo", a Revo 3.3/ Summit hybrid.

    I believe that a 55T spur is the biggest available, and without modification, I think a 11T is the smallest pinion. You can do the "tranny flip" to lower the gearing even more.

    Yep, you need a tap/connection from the battery pack to the voltage sensor. Otherwise it reads the receiver voltage, from the bec. (about 5 to 6 volts) :cool:
