    Proline Trenchers

    I just bought a set of Trenchers 2.8s for my slash. It's a stock VXL running nimh batteries. Will I need to make a gear change with these???

    It has the stock 23 pinion and 86 spur. As far as if the motor is 4 pole I don't know. The slash was bought 2 years ago.

    Okay you might want to go down like two teeth on the pinion and you should be fine.

    Yup and that you may see some speed, acceleration, and torque differences.
