thanks,
I drove it with a 55t integy lathe and no problems, crawled great with a 8 tooth, 6 cell sub C, Rebel2, Super

then sold it and bought a 2 speed,
added a Mamba max, Bm16, 8 cell and it broke, so i bought an Ax tranny, it's holding up great and I broke my axles with out the axial skipping a beat

So in a 2.2 scale rig, what is the ideal gear ratio (pinion, spur, and tranny gears NOT including the diff gears and tire diameter)?
I am playing around with an idea that will give me a 15.98:1 (when factoring in the gears mentioned previously).

Hey thanks a lot for the feedback!

That is what i needed to hear...that is exactly what my setup was going to be so thanks for letting me know.

How did you like the 2 speed? What is the primary reason to use it in your opinion?

I have a n00b style question. Do you use the full Pede housing or just the gears.

Thanks

Ok. I'm going with the Axial AX10, but what chassis will that bolt onto without modification? I am, of course, going away from the stock chassis, but I need a recommendation.

Thanks

Thanks for this thread. I picked up TLT axles and a "pede" tranny for a basher...I like the fact that it has one of the higher gear ratios. I'm looking for speed. I was also looking into the stealth, had a RC10 back in the late 80's when the stealth first came out and wondered if it would be a good crawler tranny...sure didn't make a pulling tranny worth a damb....

thanks again

I will have to do the math but I have a AX10 trans with a 55T integy and all that i have that fits together right now is a 24tooth on the motor and 78 tooth spur, what do you guys think?

What battery voltage and tire size? Scaler or comp rig? How heavy?
If you are running tires under 5" tall on 3 cell lipo it should be OK, but bigger tires or lower voltage and it's going to stall out a lot easier if you have good traction.

Which one would be better? a peed trans or a hawk trans????
I was liking the hawk since its smaller & has an alum motor plate that i could easly make a biiger one to use a larger pinion gear. but I have to admit that I know very little about gear ratios..
I can post pics of the internals too if needed.

Stock chassis? Probably need to hack 75% of one side away and drill four mounting holes on the other side plate to mound the transmission. Motor on top. Can't say I've seen that done.

I kind of figured that, I don't want to cut up my chassis, I guess I'll leave it as is thanks anyways.
