Default I Need Gearing Help!!

Hey guyes, hoping someone could help me out, i have a Losi xxx-cr with a 15 turn venom motor in it (i know the motor sucks but it was so cheap!).

try a 17 to start and run it three minutes and check to see if it is very hot if not then your ok. much more than that could cause overheating issues. but i have not run one of those motors.

It depends if you have the stock spur gear or not
If you do i would also start at 16 or 17 and then change the size until it is the way you like it.
Less teeth on the pinion means better acceleration and braking and less top end
More teeth on the pinion gives less acceleration and brakes but a higher top end

Hope this helps
