    I don't have it but if you are running 3s maybe try 15/54
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    I ran mine on 3s geared 18/54 on SC tires/wheels. Worked great....almost 50mph and never got hot. Currently running a Kershaw 2700kv geared 17/54.... a tick over 50mph and stays cool.

    I ran my VXL-3S with 2400kV on 3S LiPo at 18/54 with no problems:

    I am currently running my El Sob special geared 21/50 and she flies! I am still very happy with the motor system

    The "El Sob Special" is the ET-3S (MMP) ESC with the 2400kV motor from Traxxas' Funny Car.

    I've switched it up to a 19/50 on 3s lipo. Still looking for a little more reliable speed, so i'll probably try a 20/50 and a 21/50. I just wondered what everyone else has been getting away with.

    I run a Traxxas MXL-6s and 2400KV funny car motor. 20/50 on 4S and its stupid fast.
    Nothing breaks on it, only issues I have is that my pinion gear keeps slipping because the set screw backs off (i use blue loctite)
