any other ideas? slipper elim? is it worth doing mip axles?

That's taller than the gearing I run in my buggy (30/69). With a D4 17.5 short stack I run 24-25/75 using a slipper eliminator with 50 (or more) degrees of timing. My T5M is very fast. If you're running a regular D4 for can go up a tooth or two. Your track must be long and the climate mild. My T5M would come off the track on fire @ 30/78.

Got everything built, and all I have to do is paint body, glue tires and wait on electronics to get here, and a servo. I think the manual calls for a starting point of 84/20 for a 8.5 motor so think I will start there and see how it goes and watch the temps.

Unless you were running your timing at 0, you are WAY over-geared. I run 74/24-25 in my Fantom Trinity based motor, with a HT rotor, timing around 40-45. You are actually slightly over-geared for a buggy! let-alone the truck that is both A) much heavier, and B) has a DRASTICALLY higher roll-out due to it's giant tires.

I too have struggled to find the right gear ratio. Running a fantom ion short stack, currently running 25/78 with a slipper eliminator and 50-55 of timing. It feels like it lacks low end acceleration.

short stack? over-geared.. or over-timed. Those motors, at least in offroad, i find to do a lot better with less timing than that, unless you're on a huge track. drop to a 24, and 45 timing.. see what you get.

I started at 81/20 and it was slow, I am now at 81/25 in blinky mode.

Have a T5M on the way. What is a good motor/esc/gearing combo for running on grass in theback yard? Going to mow down/mark off a track.

Is anyone using clamping front hexes, I noticed on some setup sheets people are using them on the t5m and sc5m

Yes. It really doesn't matter though. Just personal preference

Does anyone on here run a stadium truck on a carpet track? Looking for a good start point for what I think is mini golf carpet, where proline carpet tires are used for buggy.

I would start with yellow compound Schumacher tires.Make sure to get some foams like aka or proline as foams are not included.Stagger for the front and vees for the back.
