Default Axial Wraith gearing recommendations on 2S

Got a wraith sitting here I am toying with giving a try.

Right now, I would want to use it on 2S lipo. I am looking for something speed wise like a rock racer. Going pure crawler doesn't interest me at all.

Anyway, what kv of a motor would be good for that kind of usage on 2S lipo and what gearing?

Also, if anyone knows what to punch in specifically for the Wraith in the script asylum speed calculator I am all ears.

Easy peasy..your wanting 3000kvish or a lil better. If you have the 87t spur I'd start at 19 to 20.then you know the routine. Run a bit check temps adjust according. Or you could always say screw it and put a castle 3800kv setup in it.

I've been running 3500kv 20/87 works good for me. Right now im running a vxl combo and 20/87 with receiver in a balloon cause we're going foff on the snow and paddles with 3s to try some water skipping. Was doing some reading though bexause im running a scx10 trans in my number 1 wraiith but number 2 wraith will have a wraith trans and looks like the come with an 80 tooth spur and run a 20 pinion. So I will try that shortly.

thanks. Seen a deal on a 4 pole 545 ish 3400kv hobbywing. I was thinking that or a 4000kv or 4700kv motor on 2S. The previously owner looks like they modded the chassis already for a 550 sized motor and also beefed up a variety of things.

If you was running 3s atomik has a deal on a 550 sensored 2650kv for I think 18 bucks. End of year closeout. I ran a 540 4000kv of theirs and it was mean.

cool. Any ideas on what to enter in the asylum speed calculator tool?

I got some 2.8 tire sets with the 17mm wheels, thinking of the 17mm conversion to drop on there too.

17mm would be sweet. I've never used a calculator program. Just velcro my s5 to the chassis and let her fly. Lol.

Honestly I'm to lazy to do all the research for gearing on every vehicle. Finding all that jazz takes to long. But I do see what your saying. Knowing roughly where your starting out helps
