i recently bought a used erevo and it had summit wheels and tires on it. I switched to the talons and was wondering if my gearing is ok. i have 18/56 and running 4s. thanks!
That's a decent gearing you could go up to 21/54 if you are running cool
you should at least jump up to the 18/54 supplied gearing if the truck came with the 54 spur.
if your batts are in the 5000 mAh 30C (150 amps) to 40C (200 amps) range.
21/54 is a good gearing I have ran it for a few yrs now, temps are pretty good.......
Would you go flip my truck back over??
thanks guys i plan in doing a little racing too. would 21/54 be good for that?
Depends on where you are racing at and what kind of track/conditions. The general idea for racing is to have it geared where you can barely max out the speed in the longest stretch. Usually around 35mph.
its a short trck with a clay surface wont need alot of top end
gearing for track racing is tricky. it's alot of trial and error i raced on a medium sized track last year and i geared 65/18 on 4S and never got above 135-140 even when it was the summer. it had plenty of speed. as far as my bashing gearing, i prefer 54/22 on 4-5S
