Rubber tires or Foam.?
Indoors or out doors.?
I would start with a 16 or 17 indoors.
18 or 19 out doors.
(Rubber tires)

i do not race, this is for my own personal speed and fun. i am running rubber tires on asphault outdoors.

right now its at 72/18. i am using my epic intense 10x2 modded into a 8turn double. it does seem to get hot running an 18t pinion was thinking maybe a 17 but i like the speed of the 18.

whats the differnece between rubber and foam?? is foam faster or rubber or opposit?

i have my rear diffs open but alittle tight and i am running a front one way if u need that info.

If its hot it could be a lot of things as long as it doesn't get to hot it should be ok.
The 17 sounds to be the better though. The foams wont be better if just racing around the street I would stick to the rubbers. I would get some treaded tires.
The car will probably handle better if you loosen the rear diff a little.

If you want more speed, go brushless. you'll have more speed than you know what to do with.
