Default Xxx-s Rtr

i am new to the touring side of r/c, i bought this xxxs rtr,with the 19t trinity motor and novak (xrs?) esc. How fast out of the box should this run. i though it was running pretty slow @22-25 mph. My mf2 2wd stad truck was quicker with a 24p2k stock mtr. are touring 4wd cars slower than 2wd. can someone please advise.
Thank You.

With 2wd the motor runs almost directly to the rear wheels so more efficient, a 4wd has to transmit the energy from one end to the other through gears etc losingng effiency so yes its quite allright for it to be slower.

Well as you should know, lower turns = more maintenance e.g. less time between comm cuts and brush changes, a 14turn would give you a good 4mph faster I'd say but the maintenance side would ake it harder

Yes as they will have changed the gearing to run faster, matched batteries, high tech equipment, and someitmes around 12turn motors.

The 19T motor that comes with the RTRs are not the same as a 19T or more you can buy in the store.
When my neighbor bought his RTR he went to the track with me one day last year to mess around. I was already racing there so I had a C2 19T and a stock motor. Both TC3s.

We had a drag race down the back straight cause he wanted to see how fast his was. Both running same gearing and my car easily outran him both times with the stock Monster and the C2.
