Default Elect. Rustler with Reedy 19t ... WHat gearing?

Hey all, My 12yr old nephew just got a Rustler for xmas. We put in a new Reedy 19t motor and used the stock pinionand spur gear. The car has weak top speed, good torque, but the motor gets extreemly hot. Can anyone tell me what a good gearing combo i could use. It is strictly a basher truck.

Thanks

I have a Rusty and Reedy 19T! The quad mag is a mostly torq motor! On a hard packed surface with light tires I run 20/84 but for everything else 18/87! Lighter tires will help to get the temps down and speeds up too!

Thanks Vato!! Do you have any idea of what kind of speeds can I expect?

ALso when you pick up your truck and the rear supension is fully extended do your rear wheels have more resistance (almost a binding feel) when turning them. once i compress the shocks and the wheels come up a bit and the drive shafts get a little more horizontal then the wheels free up and rotate perfectly. any thoughts?

i dont know if the rustys ahve them but you can set the droop to stop that from hapning. if not its really not a problem. also make sure that the esc can handel a 19t motor. it may work fin now but once u get stuck and pin it it will blow the esc if its not able to handle that low of a turn.

I quickly looked for a droop adjustment and didn't find one, but if I could then that probably would fix my problem. Thanks everyone for the replies .... and keep em comin if you have any other thought out there

My nephew's is not fast at it's current set up .... but hopefully changing the gearing will help. If i were you I would get the fastest motor \you can afford .... with me I always wish i could go a little bit faster ... no matter what I have
