    For the benefit of others running Nimh like myself, i use 18/62 for all around bashing. No sense in gearing up for a speed run, after all it isn't lipo - and it just makes thing hot.

    20/68 should be about 3.40, and 18/62 about 3.44. So for two given gear sets being almost equal, would one be more beneficial or efficient over the other? A 17/58 is also numerically equivalent at...
