    Is there any Gear combos that shouldn't be used like 14/90 or 23/83

    Someone around here swears by 16/90. I use 16/83 or 16/86. They are so cheap I just bought two of every traxxas pinion and spur and screwed around til I found something I liked. Only takes about 2 minutes to change them out and set the slipper once you've done it a couple times.

    Well, the slipper is adjustable for a reason.

    But what I meant was that each time you change a spur, you'll be redoing the slipper by default. They are attached to each other afterall. After a few times you'll know where it is supposed to sit thus only taking a few minutes to change out a spur/pinion.

    Gearings that you shouldn't run will depend on the motor that you are running. I wouldn't go above the included "speed" gear. Off road, I wouldn't go above the factory installed gear.

    That's probably because different gearings will be used for different types of vehicles. If the motor was installed in a touring car, it could be geared much higher.
