    general gearing options available. what do you run?

    i was just looking for some more options as far as gearing. i was wondering what you guys were running smaller gear wise that still fits in the stock motor mount adjustment range. i ask this because i just went to a 23/90 gearing and im all the way out on adjustment to make this fit. im looking for gear ratios around stock but just smaller in size overall.

    I had stock slash 2wd titan 12 turn motor xl5 and i ran 19 90. Then now with velineon vxl3s i was suggested to run 23 90 . Track only. And it fits well i dont see what issue you would have.

    it fits, just all the way out on adjustment to fit it.

    whats the big difference between 48P and 32P? which one is better?

    32p gears can get the same/similar ratios. They are tougher and hold brush less power better.

    If your wanting to gear up more look at going with 32p gears.

    ok i do know that the pitch of the gear has nothing to do with the ratio, so that statement in itself is out. unless you just mean it in the manner that there are more option for 32 pitch gears then there are for 48 pitch gears. ill believe that they hold up to the power better though.

    I run 13/54 in 32 pitch gear cover wont fit but you dont need it. Only way you will need new gears is if the pinion decides to take flight.

    I run between 19 and 23/86 on one, and 14/56 or 54 on the other. Neither are VXL motors, but on the VXL, 21 or 23/86 was nice. 23/90 is a 3.91 ratio, so you could use a 19/76 and get a 4:1 ratio, if there's enough adjustment available. Divide the spur by the pinion to get primary ratio, then multiply by the trans ratio (2.72 or 2.73, depending how you round) to get the final drive ratio.
    32p gears are less efficient than 48p and have less fine tuning options due to their coarser pitch. They are stronger, again due to their coarser pitch. If the LHS had 5mm 48p pinions in stock, I would be using 48p, even with the 550 4-pole in my truck. 48p is plenty strong with a slipper. There is no "power pulse" with electric like there is with nitro, which is why nitro vehicles use a coarse tooth on the primary side.

    You should see them now. LOL I believe in running them till all the fluid comes out in one run then build em. Plus adding fluid gives me something to do to it since it dont hardly break anymore.

    here is a gear chart I found to be handy
