The JConcepts BJ4-WE manual provides information for gearing of a 3 Star:
12.19:1 Final Ratio
I also noticed on the LRP website that they only mention the Neo 1 & 2 Star motors for off road use.
When I called LRP tech. support they said that the web site should be changed and many customers use 3 Star motors for 4wd
off road use.
I also checked with JConcepts before buying the 3 Star and they said the drive train in the BJ4-WE would handle down to a 4 Star without any issue.
It is FAST!
And neither the ESC or motor don't over heat.
