I am new to the RC hobby and just purchased a Slash 4x4. I will not be racing but I was interested in the speed I was getting out of the box. I hooked up my old phones GPS program that I use for when I take long bike rides.
My first few runs had the 13/54 gear combination. I was able to hit a top speed of 31.25mph.
I then switched to the 18/54 set up. With this I hit a top speed of 37.75mph. I did notice the motor became much hotter running this gear combination.
With all of this being said I mainly plan to use nimh batteries to run off road and possibly hit some jumps. I would appreciate any tips to improve my off road bashing.
