hi anybody switched to the close ratio gear set
i was wondering what this does for the crawling
i presume it will slow the vehicle down and give more torque
any body tried that can shed some light on it
Summit, E-Revo, E-Revo Brushless, Merv. Baja 5BSS
nope the close ratio will speed up first gear.
Correct. You'll have less difference between the two speeds.
If you want slower, you'll have to gear down at the pinion/spur gears, although you'll lose some top end off 2nd gear (hi) by doing that.
