erbe to eslayer gearing question
this question is for all you guys that have done the conversion. what gearing are you using? im using a 22t pinion and a 54t spur but with the little sc tires its too slow. i wanted to get a smaller spur but the smallest 32 pitch spur i could find is a 50t. should i just switch over to mod1 and get like a 20t 36t combo? thanks
I am running 58/25 which is just a little faster then yours and I don't think it is slow . In fact it is geared about just right, ideally you should get 40mph with 4s, 50mph with 5s and 60mph with 6s. I am running 4s and want to try 54/25 which will get me to 42mph with fresh batteries. Robinson racing makes that 25t 0,8 pinion and it fits motor mount without modification.
your running 58/25 on your eslayer with smaller wheels ?

4s +58/25 = 38mph. 54/25 = 42mph

40 on 4s for a monster truck. Smaller and lighter tires means you can gear for a higher speed. Mine is geared for 50 on 4s and temps are fine on all but the hottest days. Need to change to mod 1 gears to get the taller ratios. The nitro revo spurs are a bolt on replacement in mod 1 flavor.
