If you have never driven a 4wd a 13.5 is prolly the best bet. Would not go beyond a 10.5 to start. Just get an ESC with some kinda boost for later--once you get a handle on things and want to blast down the straight.

Tekin is a good motor. As for what turn depends on the size and layout of your track.

For those of you chasing different looking bodies, heres my tresrey one, they've got heaps of room compared to the original and the air holes are in a great place to cool the speedy and motor.......Team Durango DEX410 4WD 1/10 Off-Road Buggy Thread-dsc_1741.jpg

I like the Tresrey Body, I just don't like it $40 worth!

Agreed, but they do come with a wing for 40$ and it's not as if the bodies get damaged like sc bodies do!

Also because of the air flow in the right place and the xtra room I can run with high gearing for longer without temp issues.....

Here is a pic of the snapped rear outer hingpin. This thing is only 2mm at the center!!! I find it hard to believe that even the hingpins in the B4, a buggy that is far lighter, are significantly stronger and beefier.

I have never seen this with these cars--must have been a bad one. The car is not nearly as fragile as all the other makers of a 4wd buggy.

Another question for you guys on gearing... I chimned in yesterday and asked bout gearing with an 85 spur for a reedy 6.5, and was recommended a 22... I run on a medium sized indoor clay track. After an 8 minute main, the buggy came off the track at 200.... and I wasn't running the car very hard.. maybe a half second full throttle on the back straight per lap... pretty much half throttle the rest of the way around the track.

Am I geared too tall? with a 22? Should I try a 20? Im not sure the motor can get much closer to the spur.

Is your body vented? The stock body allows for little to no ventilation. my set up was running about 180 until I vented the body, now I'm pulling off about 115-125..

I can't answer as far as gearing for a 6.5.. I'm running 10.5 indoors

I think 22 is a little high, I'd try 20, also check your bearings/drive line for resistance, especially rear hub bearings and the spur bearings, also what body are you running?, I found that temps run a little higher with the standard body as its so tight, maybe Dremel some holes in the body to let some airflow in where the speedy sits, also make sure your not to tight in your gear mesh.

Cheers Justin

It's cut along the body lines... no vents.

i cut the two side pods just a tad for venting with my 6.5 and 22t you could try a 20 but the body still needs some venting since everythings in such a tight space.

Just remember also that electric motors generate most heat at the highest current draw, which is accelerating and braking so a short tight track can generate more heat then a long flowing track, so don't be fooled into think a small track = less heat it doesn't......

Best thing to do in my opinion is check for no binding, cut the vents in the body then test an 18 pinion, if it runs cool then go up, I would try to keep you temps under 150 for a 5 minute run that way when your having a ten minute practice run etc you should still stay under 180 or so, just remember it won't hurt your lap times at all if your 1 tooth undergeared but it will save temps, there's a fair chance your not taping out at full speed anyway with a 6.5 so why over gear it?
