    Gearing

    Hi everyone! I have a question about the gearing on my summit. I am setting it it for crawling. I have ordered losi rock claw tires, which are pretty big. Do I need to adjust the gearing? I already have the transmission flip done. I was thinking a 12t pinion and a 55t spur. Would that be too low? Thanks for replies!

    With 5" diameter tires (which I believe the Losi Rock Claw tires have) and a 55/12 gearing and a flipped tranny, you are looking at 10mph top speed on 2S.

    What would be a good gearing setup so I could get a little more speed?
