    New owner tamed down parking lot bashing gears

    Hello everyone this is my first xo1. It hits 50mph locked and 50 mph unlocked. I know it has a 14 t pinion installed right now. Not sure on the spur. What ever stock was. In the bag I have 14 pinion
    34 pinion
    54 tooth spur
    50 tooth spur

    What is the fastest gear combination I can use. I want to be able to bash and drift and drive around and do a top speed run every so often. How fast do you think the chosen gears could go?

    What's a good combo for 80-85 but bashing through a entire pack just drifting and drag racing.

    The factory spur is 46. I like to run a 24T pinion. It's exactly half way between stock and top speed, mine hits around 75 geared that way. Great for most large areas you're likely to find. An area to run 100+ is an awesome find but not typically something easy to locate.

    If you're wanting to do drifting and general driving with the occasional high speed run I would run 46 spur and then try out pinions in the 20-25 range. If you do too much drifting with the 34t pinion you'll see high temps pretty quick.

    Do you still run the factory spur gear (46t).?

    What kind of speeds do you see flat out? 80ish?

    85 is the fastest I've hit but that was not full throttle... space limited... but better control that the 34 pinion...

    I use 1/1 but 52/46 would be possible

    With stock gears and unlocked, I can hit 56 pretty regularly.
