    -1 for 32p.

    Setting the gear mesh should not be that difficult. My father has been racing for 14 years, I have been in the hobby for ~8 and neither have ever stripped a gear. All 48p, I cannot imagine ever having problems.

    Look into getting better motor mount screws. If those come loose in any way, you're going to get stripped spur gear. I too have never had a stripped gear so it is possible to run without stripping the gears. How do you set the mesh anyway out of curiosity?

    No, to get 18/86 in 32p it would be 12/58, and 23/86 would be 15/58.

    Here is a gear conversion chart. Find the gear ratio you are running now in the 48p chart. Go to the 32p chart and find a ratio as close a possible under 56 or 58 tooth spur. That is your starting point. A basic rule is if you go up or down 3 teeth in 48p, you will go up or down 2 teeth in 32p to get the same change in gearing. These gears cost about the same as the stockers. You need a jato spur (58 tooth or 56 tooth) and an (E-Maxx pinion). Robinson Racing Products also has 10 and 11 tooth pinions if you need to gear down further. I use 10,12,14/58 and is comparable to 15,18,21/86.
