Default 14t speedgem does not fry xl5

I have been running a 14t speedgem in my slash with the stock speed control,as long as you gear it right and maintain it you will be fine. faster than some brushless i encounterd. BUT, the dude with that sick fast truck needs to drive consistant and not just bash! a good driver will buy a 35$ brushed motor and whip ass all over the track,anybody else perfer a brushed over a trendy brushless? i dont hate brushless,I just have a 2800$ mortgage lol

and to think...i smoked mine with a PROPERLY geared 27t motor. Within seconds, didnt even get 50 feet. Swapped out speedo's (Novak GTX) and tore up the track, 4 seconds back from the TQ in Mod Slash...and we had some really great drivers that night.
