Default Setup for my Eight-E

Hi guys, I'de like to have your opinion on my current setup:

I have a New Eight-e buggy with the 2100kv system.

I own a 4cell Losi 5000mah pack and 2 5cell 5000mah polyquest pack.

I'de like to know wich pignion do I'll need for running it on 4s and 5s on a tight small track!

What kind Do I need? mod1? pitch?... I already have a 16t that came in the kit.

Best regards!

I suggest you dont use the 16T. It heats the motor a lot.
Start using a 12T MOD1 (thats all you need to know about it) and if the gearing is too short, maybe a 13T. Losi made a admitted mistake putting these pinion on the 8ight.

All right then, I'll order a 12 and 13 tooth

I just try to figure out why Losi put a 16t in the kit if its going to over heat the electronic??

I've used several pinons. The best yet, was 14/45 gearing. I'd suggest you get a 13 and a 14 pinion. Over revving the motor makes it get hot too.
