I'd say it already comes on the fast side gearing wise, how fast do you need it?

Oh I don't know. It's only a $9 part. Why not? I'm curious.

I feel there is no point to going to a smaller spur gear. There is plenty of room to go to a larger pinion gear, plus pinions are cheaper and easier to change.

I'm still waiting for an aftermarket aluminum crossmember/servo mount that allows for a 12 or 13 pinion and properly relocates the servo when ditching the lame servo saver.

My only real complaint with the truck is the lack of gear reduction. I get that much of the trans is recycled from the mini savage, which is plenty rugged, but lacking reduction. Wish the transfer case, which I think was designed from scratch for this platform, was a bit lower. Something between 1.8:1 and 2:1 would bring the total reduction into the sweet spot for precise creeping abilities.

I shared a design for a 3d printed crossmember/motor mount that allows for lower gearing and has a spacer to drop the servo down. If you're not dead set on Aluminum here it is: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3569491

I gotcha, I won't be crawling with the SBK build though. Doing a Tuff Truck Build.

I do appreciate the effort it takes to design an elaborate crossmember/servo mount. I'm just really hard on equipment and have very little faith in anything 3d printed that is structural holding up to my abuse.

Maybe I'll try it out anyway, as the lack of gear reduction bugs me very much.
