Default Have the 2 Cobalt pullers driven off Rooster Crawler ESC

They crawl great, and same as cathocism (sp?) I snapped my axle innards the first serious time crawling rocks. I used 0.6 mod pinions from Towerhobbies made by Novak for fitment of their motors to Duratrax stuff. They sell a 3-pack of 10,11,12 (or 11,12,13) and I used the smallest ones. I also had to relocate the lower links the outer positions. I wired 2 6cell packs in parallel for extra weight up from, but also have a smaller LiPo 7.4V pack to run singly if less weight is needed. Can drop truck onto it's side on wheels and it won't flip over, so balance seems good. See my pics for my HomeDepot chassis in the photo gallery. WB is 11.5-12 inches.

link to Tower for what I bought and used 11,12,13 tooth mod 0.6 pinions, work fine, no modifications at all for the Cobalts in the CC.

JRH, sorry for the threadjack, if you run 48 pitch gears, will these turn the diffs or will there be binding?

normal 48p gears will wear down the internals on the CC. It wont even be close to proper mesh.
