    Post VR46 setup

    Bought it a week ago. Installed velineon brushless, cooling fans, 4x4 slipper clutch, 32p 54 th spur, 17th pinion. Have the aluminum shaft, but need splines. Running 2s and occasionally 3s Lipo. Runs good, just nervous about gearing. Have another 50th spur, just looking for a good combo for road and dirt. Rest is stock.

    For onroad use you may get away with using a 17T pinion, but watch the temps carefully!
    To put it in perspective, the stock gearing in the original VXL Rally a few years ago was 13/54T (same as on the Slash 4x4). For all-purpose use this is about right for 2S and 3S.

    With the Velineon system you will need fans to use 17T pinion in warm weather on even 2s. If you go 3s you will want to gear down to something like 12T-13T still with fans.

    You can try 16/54, but you may need to get some smaller pinions as well. If you do get pinions, there is a 9t, and also you can grab 11t, and see how that works. But before you buy anything, try 16/54 and see how it works.
