What motor and gearing are people running in 17.5 blink classes? I have a tekin seems to run hot in general. I notice other motors seem to be vented better.

Have not seen any setups from Cav or Maifield. One thing that sucks is translating mod set ups to stock. When you have a 17.5 compared to a 7.5 some things work differently.

Finally finished up my buggy!

Sensor wire clip tip! This looks like it's gonna work out great, just find a piece of lexan with a 90 degree bend.







And what is a good starting point for 17.5 gearing? I'm sure if was discussed but there is so much to search though

If anyone is running the car outdoors try taking the Ackerman spacer out to calm the steering . my local factory guy drove it before and after and noticed it calmed down the aggressive steering just a little info
