Yeah, his gearing is fine.

I never stated that anything was wrong with his gearing, however, gearing down from a 16 to a 13 on the bell and up a few teeth on the spur or some combination of both will definitely give him results, if not solve the problem completely. I had the same issue.

i agree with u jammin, my truggy gets thrown around with my jx .21/2042 like a rag doll and i using a light clutch set up. Ive never ran a 2035 on my ninja, the 2042 is awesome tho
