Default Semi-Janged Rustler with stripped spur

heres some pics of my 1/2 janged rustler, i put a 4200 MaH battery in it, and can you say WHEELIES ON DEMAND?? but about 4 minutes into the run, i stripped the spur, i think i need to lower gearing and loosen slipper more...? what are your thoughts?

Stripped spur gears are usually the result of improper gear mesh or having the slipper too tight.

Thumbs up

it was good timing cause i was gonna gear down anyways, so i spent 6 bucks to buy a smaller pinion and another spur.

and i loosened up the slipper.

i also lowered it about 1/2 of an inch and it seems to handle a little better, moved the shocks in the front, and moved the hubs in the back.

VXL>MM7700
I believe the 7700 motor has a 8-cell limit and top speed is really about 50mph, while the VXL can easily hit 65 with the proper gearing and a LiPo. Plus it will have much more torque and won't overheat. The 7700 motor is more for a light TC. Plus, from my experience, it does not cog at all, unlike my MM ESC. But you'll have to get past the cheezy case design.

it does about 60 with the stock gearing and a 4200MaH NiMH battery, i could smoke a VXL if i had a LiPo.
