Default How many turns can a rustler handle?

I have a mostly stock rustler and i was wondering how low of a turn motor can the stock drivetrain handle? What upgrades should i do to handle a lower turn motor?

if you loosen the slipper as much as humanly possible...and dont jump it, I'd imagine that a rustler drive train could handle a pretty heavy mod motor...only question is, how much can the ESC handle?

Have a look at the new parts on the rustler vxl, obviously this rustler has the parts able to within the power of the brushless system.

I have a Novak GT7 going into it so thats not a problem. I was just wondering if the drivetrain could handle a low turn motor....like a 10 or 11.

Exclamation esc

the DRIVETRAIN can handle a lot. it's standing up to my mamba with no problem.

the ESC can handle down to 18 turn i think... if it is an XL-5, i don't know what it can handle, i have a normal rustler.
