you wont get a straight answer from any1, ive tried multiple forums, with no success...
i contacted castle creations, and they say run a 12:1 gear ratio to be safe, and change gears from there.
using the bd5 internal ratio(2.0), ive come up with 12/72, 14/84(pinion/spur). as a starting point.
as for the lipo battery, its good to know that people have room for it, i just ordered a intellect 5000 hardcase lipo.
i only use this car for bashing(i race open-wheelers, so no time for rc racing), and im pretty happy with it so far. no failing parts, no broken parts, and everything lines up properly(no shimming needed). and its very easy to setup.
im using martin's asphault setup, with kawahara 30shore foams, and it handles like its on rails!
