Hello Everybody,

I'm a proud new owner of a new slash 4x4 ultimate. I can say I am very happy with my purchase, save for the lie about how it can run 3s batteries. As I have come to find out 3s batteries pretty much mean you have to fight temps. So at this point I'm not ready to upgrade to a new esc motor combo which I believe means I need to change our my pinion gear. This is what brings me to the forum.

I was reading the online manual and it says that to gear to a 11t pinion gear would require the "removal or modification of plastic motor end cap for proper fit". I haven't seen anybody mention that when giving advice to change the gearing. Is this a hard modification for a relatively new person to do?

Also if I upgrade to this:


can I just drop in the motor and esc with no other modifications?
