I though I'd make this thread because after two hours of searching I didn't find a true good answer. What would be a good pinion to run on the DeWalt with the stock 68t spur gear? I'm leaning towards a 18t pinion, but I'm not 100% sure. I'll be running 80-90% in grass that sometimes can get rather tall. I'm really afraid the 18t pinion is too high gearing and it will kill run time, or ruin my esc/DeWalt. So, what gearing is everyone using with their DeWalts? I just want to get a feel for what I should use. Thanks!
Ya would be nice to know
I would start 16/68 and watch temps

Mountains cant stop me
they have tried
I ran 18/68 last years with no problem, that was with Proline Trenchers.
Tekin powered Summit
I guess when I get to do the swap ill just stick with the stock size since I went down 2 teeth with the mudslingers
Oh, I'm running Trencher X's, would that lower my gear ratio because of the smaller tire size?
that line of pinions wont work... check out the .8 mod line from RRP :
Its the small bore of the previous pinion that makes it incomparable.
To SUMMIT up, its my coolest RC.
I have the 14.4 Dewalt. My son bashes on the track and dirt/gravel with a 19 tooth pinion. Grass, like a park or football field we drop to an 18 tooth. The 19 tooth ran a little warmer than I liked. He bashes with original Trenchers. Your Trencher X tires are a little shorter so the 19 will probably be fine.
JMHO, but just like others have stated here and elsewhere, keep your eye on temps.
BTW, looks like a fun place to let her rip
