    Question What spur gear are you running?

    Hey guys!!

    What's the best gear to use for X Maxx?

    Stock is 46 or 50?

    I noticed Traxxas released the new metal spur gear...it's 54 tooth...does this mean more speed?! I'm running Traxxas 3s 5000 and am getting around 30 min run time. I'd like a little bit more speed?

    The 54 tooth would be slower than the 46 or 50 tooth Spurs.
    Too much power is just enough

    Stock is 54. It's up to you to play around with gearing to find what suits your driving the best imho.......good luck

    I'm running the hot racing steel 46t but with the max6 esc and love it. smaller spurs and larger pinion gears result in slightly less torque and more top speed. personally, i'm trying to get rid of whatever torque i can to prevent body destroying wheelies.
