    use on trails?

    My Tele has a castle 3800 1410 motor geared 15-54, 2s2p 5400 lipo, badlands on split 6 wheels, with this set up do you think it will perform ok off road and moderate trails?

    You've got a little too much gear under you for my taste. I would gear it down and then I think you'll be tearing up the trails.

    Smaller pinion or bigger spur will reduce speed and give torque
    Slugs are just naturally aspirated snails

    I have a similar setup on mine ( with 12t and the 83t stocker) and with my 4k motor goes about as fast as stock, but with a lot more yank if i need it. I think the tires made the biggest difference goes really good for what it is (not a live axle crawler), but i think you will like it.
