Nitro rustler 3.3 Gearing
hey guys i have a nitro 2.5 and want to upgrade it to a 3.3... if i do will i have to redo the gearing? plz hit me back and any extra info would be helpful
The stock Rustler gears will work fine. The only difference after the engine swap will be more power, 50% more across the entire power band. If you've been happy with the take off of the 2.5, you can raise the gear ratio a little and get more top end. Or just leave the stock gears and have barely controllable power up to 50.
I put 4 inch trenchers on my rustler with a 3.3 and I ended up putting an 18 tooth clutch bell on it. For what I do(oval race track with a few buddies) it works awesome. I can't remember what spur gear I have on it. It's either a 72 or 70 but when I got it all tuned really good it was almost as fast as my friends slash vxl. In dirt anyway.
