you will have to regear, but the 27 turn motor will have more power and probaly more speed.

gearing is track dependent. I would first go and see what people are running at the track for gear and get some opinions, also find out what the limitations are if any on configurations.

If you are allowed and afford it, give brushless a look.

Just by looking at them you can see the tires their running and if their nice they'll prob. share their gearing and shock oil so you can get your car dialed but its all about what fits your driving style most.

Keep an eye on the temps if your going to screw with the gearing. You don't wanna cook your motor.

how hot is to hot for a motor? By the way the race went alright 4 out of 6, but those top 3 guys where flying take off and top end. I found out they where running 19 turns motors. What is the diffference between 19t and 27 t also i borowed some gears fromthose guys. I was running 26 pinion and 81 spur was this geared right or was this geared for there motors? Would a diffrent esc help out just got the factory one in rtr version?
