    What gearing on 2s?

    Hi I run my merv with a single 2s lipo and was wondering what everyone else runs for gearing cause iv seen some that go pretty fast but mine seems to be slow? Right now I I'm running 23/50 and am not worried about temps with my setup
    -thanks

    23/50 is what I use to keep temps on 3s in check. switching to 2s seems slow after ripping around on a 3s

    on the track 2s and 23/50 works out pretty well. I keep my truck setup in the middle, compromising between a track and on-road setup.

    Hmmm...will a lower spur gear like a 43 make mine faster?

    yes, either a larger pinion or smaller spur will increase top speed
