Default lst faster than revo possible?

I have a lst with a .28 lrp engine with 70/63 spur and 18/25 clutch bell and my friends revo is faster. Is it even possible for my lst to be faster than a revo?

For 30 bucks you can get the tranny output gears from the XXL and a 19/26 clutch bell, and you'll have him...

I have him off the line but then he passes me. Will the 16/29t clutch bell make it faster also?

yup, if you have him off the line you can afford to go up a tooth, and you will get a little more speed.

Its easy. Just jump him off the line and then run him over whenever he gets beside you. Problem solved. lol

On a serious note... How much is he beating you by? How much more top speed do you think he has? Doing what HerrSavage reccomended should help your top end a decent bit.

He's beating me now by about 5 m.p.h. I have the stock gearing and everything that it came with. I think the extra tooth should give me an extra 2 m.p.h and the gearing another 1-2 m.p.h . The old engine that it came with didnt have a chance but the lrp has almost a full horse more than the revo 3.3

Or for even faster use this combo:

F/R Bevel Gears 28/17t (LOSB 3120)
Losi High-Speed Clutch Bell 19/26t (LOSB 3342)

Shouldn't have a problem smokin a Revo with that setup.

Tons of ways to gain speed or acceleration. Losi makes different pinions, spurs, and 3 sets of transmission gears. Even a FOC will make significant improvements and reduce rotating mass.
