Default How Fast Can A Tamiya Hauler Type Truck Go???

I know these aren't geared to be very fast but I was wondering if I were to build a Racing Truck ...

>>>>



I'm just guessing that a brushless setup would be overkill in that gear box...


Looks like I will be using a Tamiya Ford Aeromax 1/14 for the build ...

Thanks !!!

They have a 3 speed gearbox. I saw one and would guess it was rolling close to 20 mph. But not sure if he was going thru all 3 gears due to space..
There was a video of someone driving theirs on ice on here a while back ago. Might search video section.
Found it.
Got a lil freezing rain yeterday.

i had a hi speed motor in mines a 8 turn brushed motor in it. it handled it i have the merc. single axle one. it wasnt easy to change gears in it at fast speeds. didnt do to much damage to gears. but i wasnt risking putting a brushless in it

They are pretty top heavy and don't like to corner at speed but fun to drive.

Making some sway bars for it would probably help as well.
