I know your supposed to switch the pinion gears when running two nimh packs in series but what if you dont? i understand it will probably heat up the motor and esc more than normal but i just want to do a few speed runs with my new street tires. the new tires are a little taller then the stock ones too so i need to consider that too. but say im careful on the throttle and dont floor it to get going but gradually get up to speed for just a few runs will it be ok? or considering the height of the new tires should i just switch them anway?

Taller tires will cause it to run hotter, if you watch your temps CAREFULLY you could try it for a few runs

thats what i figured, i will try both pinions and see how it goes but i definatley want to see what it can do with the taller tires and the bigger pinion. hopefully i can reach 55 or at least close to it. it says it can do 50 with the smaller pinion and stock tires so a bigger pinion with a taller tire? i want to go fastttt, its a one time thing though im more of a basher :)
