    Help with rustler vxl gearing.

    Hi, was just trying to learn a little about how the gearing works. Right now stock i believe it has the 86t spur and 28t pinion. 80% of the time i run on pavement, occasional dirt track here and there. I have a 3s lipo, 2s lipo and two 3000mah nimh batteries. Is there a better combo of gears for just overall speed or is should i stick with whats in there. Also i don't want to have to worry about watching temps.

    We need to know what motor and tires to give good information. The best thing you can do is get yourself a temp gun and monitor temps of the motor and ESC and use it as a guide to adjust your gearing. There are so many variables that what works for one person might not for another so knowing what your actual temps are is critical to getting your gearing right.
