Any good gearing suggestions for a 21T Torquemaster build on both 2s and 3s?

That's fast, I'd suggest gearing down to help save the motor. I'd start with something like 84-87 spur and 14-16 pinion.

Smoked the stock motor this week and have decided to run the tekin rs pro and tekin pro4 3300kV. with this combo I'm also upgrading the trans gears and the spur/pinion. what would the spur/pinion gearing need to be to keep this motor happy, cool, and alive because that price tag is way up there. thanks for any input in advance.

12/54 to 14/58 in 32 pitch works fine with the Pro4. You will have trouble getting it too hot in just about any crawling situation. I've run mine 3/4 throttle for 15 minutes without it getting over 140 degrees.

Another good combo is the brxl and a cobalt puller 7t running 18 54 gears really good top speed and still climbs like a monkey

how well would a Castle Mamba Max & 5700kv combo with a 2-cell lipo work for crawling and speed? or would the Traxxas Velineon VXL system (the first one they came out with) be better? also what would be a good gear combo to run? i have both of the systems just laying around and was thinking about putting one of the in my wraith.

You will not be happy with either set-up for crawling.

That combo will flat out not work. Only good for speed and it's really just too fast even for that.

It's pretty fast also, but there are a few people using them. Of course, it has no drag brake.

It has no drag brake, in my opinion it is way to fast for a Wraith and will do nothing but cog on crawling. Read the first post that Harley put up. If you Want to run brushless and do any kind of crawling it needs to be "Sensored" non sensored will just cog on low end.

I ran it in mine, not a good choice either. You need a sensored system.

It's spendy but a really nice motor. I haven't ran it in mine but have driven another with it. Great motor, only downfall is price.

I am not 100% sure on the programming that was used but the drag brake was sufficient for crawling.

I recommend stock gear ratio of 80t / 20t with Team Brood 35t Apocalypse GT w/standup brushes. You will have plenty of part breaking torque, and still have plenty of speed. Great combination for crawling and wheelspeed If you need more speed the 35t can go to about 23t pinion before starting to reach too hot of temps. That is under G6 type conditions where you mix speed with rock crawling and obstacles.

Of course I recommend using a Holmes waterproof BRXL. Despite what you think of the rivalry between team brood and hh, the motors and esc actually get along very well and are an awesome combination

I would suggest a faster motor with better reduction really. You would be much less likely to burn it up. With less than 4:1 reduction you are really going to be putting stress on that motor.

I'm running a HH handwound 27t. 17/87 gearing. Was working well till I got my RC4WD Baja claws. With the extra tire height I will need to drop the pinion down to a 14 or 15 tooth.
