I clocked my E-Maxx at 33 MPH; 20/62 gearing with a Tekin RX-8, Tekin 2000kV T8 truggy motor, and stock 7-cell 3000 mAh NiMH batteries. The truck wheelies from slow speed and seems to have plenty of torque; the motor gets pretty warm - I can keep my hand on it, but it's very warm - and the ESC is cold.
My question: I want to move to LiPos. If I go 6s, what's a good pinion? Perhaps 24? Further, if I were to run a 24t pinion with the stock NiMH packs, would the motor temps drop a bit? My understanding has always been "warm motor cool ESC - undergeared; cool motor warm ESC - overgeared".
I appreciate any guidance.
