Well, my setup currently is a Mamba Max Pro ESC with the Velineon 3500 motor, on a 2s 5000mAh 35C lipo. I have switched to 32p gears for the durability and I am currently running 14/56. I run my slash on all different types of surfaces.. when at home(apartment) I can only run on concrete, but this isn't very often as i usually go somewhere else to drive. The other places I run are a sand track near me(very dry, slightly course/rocky sand) and a short track I built with some friends(soft dry dirt, kind of sandy) and i run both of those tracks with the proline sc paddles. Also sometimes I have the urge to shred through dirt fields near me, pretty much baseball fields but not groomed. So basically I'm curious if anyone has any suggestions for me as far as gearing.. I'm not too worried about crazy speed, as this system is plenty fast for me.
One other thing.. Ive heard if your motor is hot and your ESC is cool you should gear up, and vice versa. Although i have also heard the exact opposite saying that if your motor is hot you need to gear down. Can someone clear this up for me?
Thanks in advance for any help.
