    Question: Ruslter VXl Pinion/Spur Change

    Hello, I recently purchased a Ruslter VXL 2WD along with the Traxxas Power Cell 2s 5800mah Lipo. I only ran the car a couple times, but I was wondering if I needed to change the stock pinion and/or spur to the included set that came in the box when using that type of battery.

    If the speed is ok, leave it as is, that bigger pinion just makes the truck faster.

    Also at the cost of extra heat on the motor. Keep a eye on motor temps try not to go over 180f
