    MT slash questions

    I am turning my son's slash on to a mt slash it runs with the titan 12 t and its power by a 2s lipo , what gearing should be the best for it ? Currently is running the stock. 90 spur 13 pinion .. (i believe)
    Also i want to give the differential a more of a posi feel so it wont get stuck climbing of the dried creek as it does now. ..any imput on this?would 300k oil be too much?. Is there a sealed differential for it?

    Have you thought about a backslash instead? I run the flm sealed diff it is amzing quality. With 100k oil it feels pretty locked. 200 would probably do exactly what you want.

    you could put some of this in the diff instead of having to buy a sealed diff

    It actually lasts a pretty good while, and it doesn't really get hot since the grease prevents a lot of movement in the diff.

    Are you going to put bigger tires on it? If not the stock gearing should be fine

    Then you need to drop a tooth or two on the pinion. Stock is 19T, so id go with a 16T-18T. And check temps if you have a temp gun.

    so a 16/18 pinions would work with the 90 spur ?or should i use the 86 that came with it?

    Stick with the 90T spur gear and get a smaller pinion gear. An 86T spur is going the wrong way on gearing.

    With the titan, use the smallest pinion you can find. A slash is heavier than a pede, and a slash mt is heavier than a slash. The titan will have a hard time pushing the big truck and bigger wheels without overheating. I would go 90/12.
