    Suitable Pinion

    What is the right pinion so that the esc and motor are warm when running a dewalt 14.4?

    I'm running a 18. And I believe that KD recommends a 18-21 my motor is warm almost to hot to handle but you can keep it in your hand and the esc is normal. I am also running a different size spur gear to.

    Running stock gears on my Dewalt and it's doing great. Of course my Summit probably weights twice as much as everyone else's due to all the modifications.
    Endeavoring to persevere !

    No problems with excessive heat, I run Canyons or original Trenchers with an 18 tooth pinion and 68 spur.

    I'm running 18/68 with my 12v dewalt, that is more hot than 14.4v. Under de dusty cover it reachs 200 degrees in a basshing session under the sun with 100 degrees ambiente temp.... it's the limit of temp I think. ESC is 180 degrees.
    With the 14.4v dewalt motor you will be ok on 18/68 gearing.
