I'm thinking about getting a different pinion gear. My set up is all stock except my road rage 2.2" and batteries I've got is 2 NiMH batteries and the Series connector which I only used when I had the rally 1/16. Right now I'm only running just one battery and 19/55. I'm in need for speed without blowing my motor and esc. I do have a fan for the esc and motor.
You pick up alot of speed by running 23/50 and keeping an eye on the temp. We run 25/50 on my friend stocker and have no problems and with the Traxxas wheelie bar missing the lower wheels on a .3 cell he.can wheelie forever and never get hot
23/55, goin down to 22, big block still get a lil too hot for me to be real comfortable
You should not be getting hot running 23/55 with a bb
