    Angry Need a little help

    I just put my LRP X12 8.5t motor paired up with my Novak GTB ESC out of my losi 22 in to my Slash 2WD
    VXL. The problem I'm having is gearing. I put my 20t pinion that is matched with the stock 86t spur witch
    equals out to a 12.26 FDR but my temps are still climbing. I've even tried my 18t pinion but still the temps keep rising. Anyone have any advice to what my gear set should be?

    Welcome to the forum!
    Keep putting in a smaller pinion until your temps get to where they should be.

    Are you running stock size tires, if not it is going to effect your final gearing.

    By chance is there anything binding in your driveline that could be adding to the heat problem??

    What temps are you getting? Are you using a reliable temp gun?

    I thought my temps were much higher before i got a temp gun.
