What gear ratio are you running? The Revo has a close ratio and wide ratio for the transmission.

no you'll get there quicker but loose top end speed, you need smaller spur gear & larger pinion. start with smaller spur, you may have to get larger pinion (clutch bell) on t maxx revo's same i think ? i noticed the top end speed dropped heaps when i put 40 series rims with low profile tyres (bowties) handles magic, but was revvin it's ring out top end. i firstly dropped a couple of teeth on a new smaller spur , more top speed but not how i want it yet. Have mta-4 with exact gearing issue due to low profile tyres. Well worth the handling improvement & if yer on a track well it's more go stop than flat out all day.But who doesn't love speed ?
