So just picked up a F-150 Raptor edition Slash 2wd. Been runnin E-Maxx forever. Question is will a Titan 550 21T work out in a slash, good gear ratio, and is it a drop in swap or will it require more mods. And what will happen? Is this worth doin? I'm looking for more speed without goin brushless(yet). Any help would be appreciated.
21t will give you more torque less top end speed. You want to go down in turns but if you have xl5 esc I think it is only rated at 12t. Your best bet is to do power up program if it's money problem on not getting brushless.
What I figured. Was looking at the VXL 3500 setup. Guess I'll have to step up to LiPo too for longer run times. Still need to take it to the track first. Need to see how it reacts in the dirt. Brushless may be too hard for me to control in dirt. Only being a 2WD and all.
I'm not a racer btw. Just runnin for my own amusement. I do also like watching my NiMH brushed rigs stomp my brothers Nitro rigs. He won't go electric.
