    this would be my advice too. 12mm hexes are a waste of time with anything over 2s.

    you are only limited by motor heat with the vxl. this is the reason traxxas recommends only using "speed run" gearing on the road and with attention placed on the temps a lot more often then you'd...

    if you plan on running them as your primary wheel then i would definitely look into picking up at least an 18 tooth pinion as going smaller will take some of the top end off of your truck. i've run...

    2.8s on 3s will cause ridiculous heat but it you gear down a couple of teeth on your pinion you might stretch it out a little longer. none the less, be aware that heat is going to ruin your fun to...

    tekno's seem a little more suited to the p4de to me. not that the weight is an issue but they are a little lighter and have the best 17mm kits that works with them.

    don't consider cvd's... get them before you plan on running 3s regularly. if you don't find those mip x-duty's consider tekno m6's. the only downside would be that you wouldn't be able to run those...

    i have to agree with this. rpm's look cooler but aren't built sturdy enough to not eventually fatigue due to continuous flexing. this is an even bigger problem when you run tekno cvd's like i do.

    if buying an upgraded motor system there are better choices then the 3500kv motor, it doesn't cope well with 3s. keep in mind that with more power you usually require upgrades elsewhere as well.
