Default New to the forum

Hello everyone.
name is Kelley. New to the forum. Just picked up a recently completed 8ight-t rtr 4.0 converted to brushless.
Running a castle mamba monster X with 2200kv sensors motor. Guy they the tlr catalog at this thing, chassis, shocks, braces, you name it, it has it
looking for the best gearing combo and diff fluid weights for F/C/R diffs.
also looking for any other tips. Going to be used for back yard bashing with my boys more than racing. I want stupid acceleration and torque.

The smaller the pinion gear you use the higher the torque you will get. But you can also get more torque by changing the motor

Default Pinion gear

I believe it has a 15t pinion and 46 spur.
the diffs are really stiff compared to a buddies 8ight-t. He generally runs 100k in the center and 7k to 9k in front and rear.
Guy I got it from "thinks" he used 200k in the center
I dont know how much diff fluid effects performance. It's my understanding that it primarily determines the power delivery bias. Is this correct?
I've also heard that having the sensored motor over the unsensored can hamper acceleration?
Can the mamba monster X run an unsensoredemotor?
sorry for all the questions...im old school from the days of RC10s and brushed motors on nicad with 7 2 volts lol

A sensored motor will accelerate much smother then an unsensored. An unsensored motor has a real chunky feeling to it. Leave the sensor wire attached it has nothing to do with acceleration speed.
