    Gearing question for semi noob

    Ok, If the stock gearing is 11/54 and according to the paper included with the truck it says good acceleration and good speed.

    The optional included gear is a 17/54. Does that mean less accelerationbut alot faster top speed?

    And the optional not included gearing is 9/54. Is this faster acceleration than the stock gear but alot less top speed?

    What if I want more acceleration that stock and higher top speed than stock without having to worry about motor temps? Should I change my gearing and stick with a 2 cell or keep stock gearing and get a 3 cell? or change gearing and get a 3 cell?

    Run a 13/54 and you'll do just fine on 2s

    3s likes to break all kinds of things.

    If you want to increase both acceleration and top speed, you can do that with higher voltage. That way you will increase the risk of temp issues. Changing gearing will either increase acceleration and lower top speed, or decrease acceleration and increase top speed.

    That will decrease my acceleration but make my top speed faster correct?

    So your saying leave the stock gearing and run a 3 cell?

    That would increase both. But again: bigger temp issue risks.

    If you ever have any spare change id suggest the Castle MMP 2400kv combo. LOL a lot less headache. I'll see if I can check my gearing in mine tomorrow evening. I really don't remember what it is, but all I run is 3s. Anything less and it hiccups.

    You can waterproof it yourself if you need to. I love the waterproof-ness of the stocker too, but i think my next round of upgrades will include the Castle 2400 combo, since I've heard so many good things about it and will never have to worry about temps again.
