    Pro-Line trenchers 3.8... Too much!

    Hello... I tried running these. I geared at 19/90. Way too much. Melted a spur gear.

    Those are made for 1/8 scale monsters like the E-Maxx. For 1/10 scale like the Rustler, going to 2.8s is a stretch, and really have to watch the gearing/temps to make it work right.

    I put the Proline Badlands on mine. I really like them. I went down 3 teeth on my pinion. Seems to handle it well.
