    I also use 18/68 with stock tires. Seems just about perfect gearing to me.

    Does sound like something wrong with the radio setup if it's a 2.4GHz... Did the receiver antenna wire maybe get damaged or pinched while the receiver box & wire clamp was open?

    The 1800 is a physically larger motor with larger windings that is able to sustain higher wattage (more power).

    If you have a 2200 and a 1800 both geared appropriately to get identical speeds,...

    Take a look at the rear fender flare (also the "rocker panel" at what would be the bottom of the door). It definitely started life as a stock Summit body.

    Looks like FPV on the boat too...

    Yeah, agreed, sounds like a differential failure (blown inner pinion bearing and/or stripped gears on the rear most likely).

    Time to tear it apart.

    I think what's being missed here is the fact that by gearing the thing so low, the motor will not have any substantial load on it, it will basically just be free-spinning itself at near full RPM if...

    I think the recommendation of the 2000KV motor is a good one.

    18/68 is actually a little tall for NiMH, I'd suggest 14/68 until you get your LiPos.

    Having LiPos, 18/68 works great with stock (sized) tires around 7" dia (and is what I run).
