    erbe to eslayer gearing question

    this question is for all you guys that have done the conversion. what gearing are you using? im using a 22t pinion and a 54t spur but with the little sc tires its too slow. i wanted to get a smaller spur but the smallest 32 pitch spur i could find is a 50t. should i just switch over to mod1 and get like a 20t 36t combo? thanks

    I am running 58/25 which is just a little faster then yours and I don't think it is slow . In fact it is geared about just right, ideally you should get 40mph with 4s, 50mph with 5s and 60mph with 6s. I am running 4s and want to try 54/25 which will get me to 42mph with fresh batteries. Robinson racing makes that 25t 0,8 pinion and it fits motor mount without modification.

    What smaller wheels? Just regular 2,2" SC wheels. Proline trencher X SC(110mm diameter). Here are some pics and info: http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...=1#post5663018
    4s +58/25 = 38mph. 54/25 = 42mph

    40 on 4s for a monster truck. Smaller and lighter tires means you can gear for a higher speed. Mine is geared for 50 on 4s and temps are fine on all but the hottest days. Need to change to mod 1 gears to get the taller ratios. The nitro revo spurs are a bolt on replacement in mod 1 flavor.
