    550 motors fit fine. The Titan 12t is a 550, (really a 540, but the fan makes it a 550).

    I'm running a 5mm pinion in my slash. It's a 32p spur and pinion at 23/58 gearing. My motor is a 540L 2150 kv and I'm clocking 50 on the GPS.

    I'm a big Viper fan. I own 2 systems, so I say go for it.

    I use 32p gearing with mine and started at 14/56

    Edit: I see the 4500kv 550 can system is only $119 from Amain. I may pick up another...
