i am putting a vxl esc and motor when i get the slash. i have smc 6 cell ener-g 4600 nimh packs im going to use. i will use this primarily at the park, grass dirt etc, and some offroad.
my main concern is keeping the motor and esc cool. i dont care about speed. do you think gearing down to 18t pinion will be undergeared?
If You run 18/86 you should be OK.I run that on my Rustler from time to time and it does keep temps down and give you decent low end power.I just run the stock gearing from the VXL Rustler its the best of power/runtime/temps.This is also a cool tool for checking your gearing.
