I have a stock slash with a vxl running on a 2 cell lipo. The front end pulls so far off of the ground that it has tore the bumper up. What gearing should I do to make it not pull a wheelie so bad?
you should be at 10.2 or so for your gear ratio. go to around 11. something. or sofen the rear suspention a little bit
OK, thanks. So what tooth pinion and Spur, 23 86?
thats what i run no problem
You can also loosen the slipper clutch a little at a time alowing for a little less rapid wheel spin untill you find what works for you. On pavement mine moves about 1 1/2 feet before the front wheels lift and it is nice and gradual. In the dirt the front end stays down most of the time.
I tighten the clutch when we want to just bash and show off with wheelies etc
My gearing is 19t pinion and 86t spur using Proline Gladiator tires.

Thanks, I will try that, are the gladiators the best for on road
I'm on 3s 76/31 and I pop them all the time, but on 86/16 or 18.. it seemed like it didn't do it as much... but also as other are saying adjust your slipper.
For smooth clean on road tracks I use Proline Suburbs MX blue groove, the tire is almost a slick so the track needs to be clean and smooth, great forward bite and I can control the slide in the turns.
Also remember clutch setup and suspension are required differently at different tracks whether on or off road.

OK, I was going to the track every once and a while, but now I don't, I just run on concrete in my neighborhood. I was thinking about getting the Street Fighters, but I don't know if they are any good.
Pretty please, with sugar on top, clean the RC car
Ok, so i got a new pinion gear today. Now I am running 23/86 gearing and i can tell a lot of difference from before. It seems not to pull the front end as bad. I'm Pleased!
Ya, does it make the motor and ESC get hot, because all I am running now is a 2C 4000 Team Orion Lipo battery? Also does it make it pull the front end off of the ground bad, I want to keep it on the ground as much as possible.
Im having problems blowing out my street fighters, I was wanting to see if I could put anacondas o you a slash, haven't seen any specifically for the slash???
