    Smile Gearing question for a Slash 4x4 Ultimate noobie - (First electric)

    I'm not familiar with how the gearing works. Here is my setup as of today.

    Slash 4x4 Ultimate
    Velineon Motor
    3s 4000mah Lipo - (Love the speed, but don't want to overheat the engine)
    Currently running 16t and 54 spur (this is where I'm wondering if this is set right to not overheat engine)

    I was running the stock setup and the engine was getting hot - but the esc was cold.
    Will the 16t x 54 spur help? (i'm not bashing, I'm actually going to race on a dirt track)

    Any tips/advice/links would be greatly appreciated - thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forums and addiction. First off, I would leave it at the 13/54 it came with. I also suggest using a heatsink with a fan. You might also want to put a hole in the windshield. If after all that I have advised, you still run hot, you can drop down to 11/54.
