    Hi, new xmaxx owner gearing questions

    New owner here, (or I will be on Wednesday when itís delivered) Iíve bought a max 6 in advance but for now at least will be running the stock motor, whatís a good starting point for gear ratios for general off road use, videos Iíve seen with the stock gearing look a little underwhelming

    Thanks in advance

    Cheers, got a GDS 46 inbound, do you think temps will be reasonable?

    Try the stock gearing before you get carried away. Itís fast enough. As soon as you gear it up you loose the low end torque and the ability to wheelie.

    I agree with this.

    I was getting 40mph with 24/46. I was also running on 6s. On 8s batteries I couldn’t imagine. I found 20/46 is good for everyday bashing.

    This appears to be sage advice, ty
