    Put the motor foward in the chassis for more weight towards the front and more spur and pinion options.

    you can use revo spur gears if you change your pinion to mod 1.0 pitch, also you can gear it to 100mph. the motor won't be in the front though

    Prob is all the pinions I have are 0.8. It would be cheaper to buy the motor mount than to buy mod 1 gears. Also i am not sure mod 1 gears will work before the motor interferes with the trans . Just don't know if I will have enough room for the motor to fit before it will hit the front shock tower.

    Same here, I tried to put a 50t 0.8p spur on with a 28T pinion I got from Castle and the motor hits the trans just before they come together. So now I got a 54t spur on but it sure would be nice to be able to gear it taller.

    Yes I am when I get home. Won't be for another 3 weeks though. Going to pick one up on eBay. Thinking the 2200 is going to be a tight squeeze not holding out much hope for the 1800.
