Default 8

I had 3 G+'s and never had luck putting power to them. I tried MM 5700's, then tried 4600's and both of them tore these cars up from the start. IMO, the b44 or other modern shaft driven 4wd is the way to go if you are interested in putting down a ton of power...

Too many people just want to go get the fastest, then wonder why they cant control it.

If you have to ask, it's more likely going to be a case of too much motor for you than it's going to be an issue for the car.

Can I put 8 turn motor in or will the gearbox die.

Can this truck handle serious motors?
It will handle the power no probs, just dont hit anything!!!

Default XXX-4 and fast motors

The XXX-4 can handle just about any motor out there.. I've run 9t brushed and even a 3.5 brushless (insane!).

Just make sure it's not all blown out.. you need to be running the upgraded yellow belt (if you have the older version).. diffs should be in good condition.. and most important is the slipper.. make sure it is tight enough.. 1 run with it too loose and it's shot! Once you glaze the little pads.. they are done!

So be sure to test it before you run a whole pack!
