    nice mod dude. those spacers are often used to replace the shoulder screws of the shocks to use some longer hardware

    Well I Just ran my first 3s 5000mah pack through it and my motor temps were 110-115 degrees

    That was with the ambient temp at 91 degrees here in Florida and my gearing 19/83

    Guess its time to see how much speed I can squeeze out of this thing with some bigger gears

    Another good use for the aluminum shock cap shoulder screws! I used them as travel limiters on my shocks before I finally learned what they are.

    well the speed with the 3s and 19/83 was ok nothing to crazy. Maybe 40's

    So I changed it to the 28/83 and wow !!! I had my wife drive behind it to see the actual speed and it hit 61mph when I lost control due to the tires ballooning bad. But I still had 1/4 throttle left so I have no duout it would have been in the 70mph range

    The good news is between the esc fan,motor hear sync,and the aluminum gear box bashing on 3s with 28/83 the temps were still around 159-160 on a full pack of bashing

    The bad news is when I lost control my wife ran it over with the car
