thats weird man i never noticed my front tires doing that with 7,7,5 on my rc8te the only other thing you can do is try "5k" on the front maybe or "10k" but thats to heavy .

im not exactly sure.

what do you mean though about driving from the front tires ?

i think i know the issue ive noticed, when using "7,7,5" the 5k in the rear diff will give you more foward grip and will power straighter there for it will feel like the front end is driveing more.

try "3k" in the rear i like it on my "rc8te", it will give you less foward grip/foward drive and will rotate more on the rear end.

although it does say "7k" in the center, will unload the front diff more and since the weight is lighter in the center. The front will balloon more but i dont notice it that bad though really the guys i race with that own a rc8t use "7k" in the center diff.

others might say diffrent on here.

have any of you guys tried out the 48t spur gear, included with the rc8/rc8t conversion E- kit ? Im thinking of trying it insend of the 50t on the mamba 2200kv i want to see if i can tame down the wind up torque on the motor ?

im thinking if i use the 48t spur i whould use a 13t ,14t maybe 15t pinion ?

Oh by the way this is on a rc8te not a rc8be.

I just got a second hand rc8t ft with a con kit and it's got a rx8/1350 kv t8 in it, will this be ok on 4s with a 19 pinion or so, or will it run not efficient enough?

I only got it yesterday but I think it's the plastic kit spur, 50 I think, my own truggy has the 1580 kv 23/50 and it's awesome, I'm just wondering whether the 1350 may be to low on 4s or not

I'm using 16T (stock) on 6S with 50T (stock) --- It's fast but I feel a bit under geared still...planning to move upto 18T pinion. No Temp Issues here what so ever.

Old setup -- youtube.com/watch?v=IT3qX-cH0qU

Now I have less "bling blings" and added Mud Guards (really helps!)

Sorry, I never had any experience with 48T spur.....but I don't believe it will make a huge difference if you're coming down from 50T. Not sure abt 4c lipo..you mean 4S? why don't you go ahead and try it ? I would suggest to try the 48T spur with 18T pinion first on 4s lipos. That's just my opinion and what I would do if I run 4S.

sorry i meant a 4s (4cell) yea i guess i could just try it but isnt the 48t spur made to be run on a buggy though and a 50t spur for the truggy ?
Man use a 18t pinion with the 48t sounds high wouldnt you gear it lower like a 14t to 16t ?

i do race on a big track for all scales but really for 1/8 scales.

As I said before, I'm running 6S with 50T spur and 16T pinion and I still feel under geared (it sure has room to go higher on the pinion).

But yeah...if you're worried....go with 15T or less...I really don't think it should be a problem with 15T Pinion and 48T spur on 2S Lipos. If you don't like the speed and the temps are okay, maybe then you can go higher on the Pinion....

I myself have bought a bunch of 48T spurs in the past ... I am going to use them when I start using 4S.

Yeah I realize that's the setup to have but I don't have hard case 6s packs, I was just Gunna gear it up till I get an average speed then temp it I think, I'll heaps of bottom end I know....

yea il start out with a 14t first, than a 15t and check to the temps on the motor i know it will likely run hotter with a smaller spur gear.

the "2200kv" motor is a torquey bastard lol thats why i want to see if the 48t spur will tame the wind up that the motor has running a 4 cell lipo not two 2s lipos just one 4s lipo.

dam you run a 6 cell
The 4 cell lipo is fast enough .
