Yeah that's the only thing I don't like about it, it's really low. Still for what it is I really like it! I like the idea of the clearance of the dual motors but they are so slow from what I'm seeing.

I picked up a 1700mah 3s Lipo today and installed the Hobbywing 1625 esc, I think I found my perfect combination, wow what a blast, I was doing donuts on the snowy driveway in high gear and low gear has lots of torque and still has some wheel speed.

Is the 2 speed plastic gear as well? Anyone have pics of the internals?

Yes plastic gears, I didn't tear it down yet, I ran the crap out of it today on 3s and so far it's doing great, I haven't heard of any issues with the 2 spd trans as of yet and I've been doing a lot of research.

Ok I'm calling this done for now and am just going to run it, I've ran about 5 3s packs through it yesterday and today with no issues. Truck is stock except for homemade steering link, Hobbywing 1625 ESC, metal driveshafts, 2 spd tranny, hacked Flysky radio, and front wheel weights. Still running stock servo. This thing has been a lot of fun to tinker with and run. Started building the C14 today it will have a bunch of upgrades on it, I'm just experimenting to see what is needed and not needed as far as upgrades go.
