    Pats4life,

    What gearing did you run on your 8s stock/maxx5 set up? Stock with 6s I am running 20/46. What can it handle with 8s gearing wise keeping temps in check on stock motor?
  2. 8s on stock motor with max6 esc longevity?

    I am thinking of going 8s on my max6 esc with stock motor. Any reports on how long the stock motor survives on 8s?

    Mike
