    Got the dewalt in today!!


    Over all I'm really happy it has a ton more torque and it stays really cool! I have it geared 19:68 right now and it hasn't got above 120

    Dry that Dewalt after wet runs (or paint it). You will develop surface rust on the can pretty quickly if you don't

    I never ran the 775 motor. My dewalt came in before the summit did. So I changed motors while the batteries were charging.

    Yup. There is a term called "flash rusting." It is appropriate for the Dewalt can. I rubbed CorrosionX on mine prior to install.

    Was the motor you bought already soldered and flat sanded on shaft? I watched a youtube vid and the guy on there said they were available that way for just a few dollars more.

    So what Pinion/Spur is everybody running for the Dewalt? I see where EMAXX1991 is running 19:68.

    Wondering the same thing myself. My reading shows that somewhere between 16-18 pinion and factory spur (68). Matters how hot you want the motor to run. IMO, How/where you drive as well as the rest of your drivetrain condition will determine if you can gear to 18.

    Was running 12/58, now 13/65 which is a little lower than the stock 14/68. This is not my speed machine, so I'd only go lower and get more run time.
