    Street Tire Gearing

    If I put some 2.2 street tires (road hawg, speed hawg) on my summit, what should I change the stock 16T gearing to?

    you could probably get away with 18t. I run 18t with stock tires, spur, and two 2s lipos in parllel with no problems. It does not get hot.

    That makes sense. I always thought that the Summit may have been geared too low for the stock battery but I guess that's another thing that separates it from the MERV.

    You may be able to a little higher, just try one tooth at a time and watch temps as you go. Where and how you run will have an affect on your temps also. I run off road and on road with no heat issues.
