Default BK2 W/13.5 in 19T class

We have a big race coming up and need some recommendation. The way it turned out is I have to run in a 19T Buggy class with my 13.5 brushless. It is a high bite fairly tight track and was wondering what you would do to a stock 13.5 to do it's best to keep up with 19T motors. Can I run the sintered armatures? also what geearing combo would you go?

Im not sure about gearing, but if you drive a clean, quick line, you should be right on the heels of the fastests guys out there. Stock motors enable you to easily to put the full power down, with little or no throttle modulation. Practice and you'll be fine.

I run a Novak 4300SS which is considered a 27turn motor and I'm not allowed to run in stock buggy class. Sucks, but oh well I guess

The 4300 is really closer to a 19t motor. It is definately faster than stock. I run the 13.5 motor in my tc in the stock class.

If you don't have the sintered rotor you need to get one. It perks the 13.5 right up.

On an offroad track, as long as you don't crash alot you'll keep right up with 19t's.
