Default Novak Velociti 3.5 Brushless Motor w/ GTB in a rustler xvl??

I have a Novak Velociti 3.5 Racing Brushless Motor with a Brushless GTB speed controller. I was planning on buying a 7.4V 2S lipo for this car. Now what would be the outcome with this combination?

i know this motor is for on-road but someone gave it to me. Is it worth using it in this car ?

It will be very hard to gear correctly. Even in sedans, that motor needs tiny pinions.

Is it worth trying to gear it or should I just buy another motor?

If you already have the motor and esc, it doesn't hurt to try. Just watch the temps and make sure the motor doesn't go above 170F.

You should probably go with a 5.5 turn at the least, keeping in mind that you may have to buy other pinion sizes anyway.

I would go with a Novak Lite motor. it doesnt have as much torque, but still the same speed as the Veloicities.
