    battery/gearing

    Hi All!

    I have a 1/16 e-revo vxl that I'm running a Traxxas LIPO in, 2200 MaH, 7.4V, 25C. I'm running the out of box gearing and seem to be having some overheating issues..... What gearing do you suggest???

    Thanks!

    What terrain are you running the vehicle on? Grass? Dirt?
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot

    Without a temp gun you wont know how hot but to be on the safe side for now put the smaller 23t pinion on for now. It will run cooler

    It’s been awhile since I’ve had it out but it does get hot enough to trip the Thermal Shutdown……. If it’s bashable then that’s what I’m running it in, I try to stay away from the grass but I can’t say that it’s never run through some.
    On a side note if I remember correctly, it over heated while my son was playing with it. I had it in training mode, might that be something??

    Would that be the "High Speed" pinion???

    Is there a pinion/spur gear chart similar to some I've seen for 1:1 gears? Like below
