    Gearing

    I am running 15/54 gearing a vxl3s esc and a 7600 mah 75c for a battery. The motor seems to be getting really hot. Is my gearing off? Thanks for any help.

    If the battery is a 3s then it is alittle high. I would try 13/54 and if the temps are not lower enough yet maybe 11/54. If you are running a 2s battery I would check for bad bearings first.

    I believe that the stock gearing for the Stampede VXL is 11/54.
    15/54 is indicated for "high speed running on smooth surfaces".

    As zedorda suggested, I would try a 13/54 or even a 12/54.
    And watch the temps.

    My stampede vxl came with a 17 tooth for high speed runs but I burned up my stock vxl motor on 3s in a month with stock 11/54 gearing and fans. Id take it easy or gear down on the pinion. 7600 mAh packs run for a long time so I could easily see that heating up the motor
