    Hardware geek needs help from Software Geek!

    I need to know the "theoretical" speed of my Slash with the following equipment:

    1. VXL system
    2. 86/23 gearing
    3. Maxamps 3s 5000mah LiPo
    4. Tire- outer diameter of 103mm (4.05")

    Any software/math geeks wanna help out a hardware geek?

    according to that, 62 mph speed with wind resistance factored in, not sure how much ur tires balloon either i put 1" for that

    Excellent! Thank you for the link. An inch is about right for the ballooning. Playing around with gear ratios and seeing what would happen.

    It will be a handfull, that's for sure. I run a 3s 5000 Maxamps in my Stampede VXL, geared at 17/86, and I can hardly get it to full throttle for more than an instant. The Slash probably will do better with a bit more forward weight, the Stampede is so back heavy I can't keep the front down.
    Traxxas racing!
