Hey Rich, I am new to the crawling deal myself, I ordered a Tekin FXR and a hand wound 45T,will be running 3s Lipo. What pinion would you recommend starting with? If anyone else would answer I would greatly appreciate! Thanks in advance for everyone!

You would do alot better if you returned the brushed set up a got a brushless combo

What won't work about it? It is a combo kit from TEKIN. Just not enough for the torque need for the axles?

I ran the same setup shortly......

Like I said, sure you can put it in but youll burn it up at the same time as not having any torque. I've been down that road already and learned my lesson, but if you feel the need to try it be my guest.

Im just trying to save you some $ and headache.

I wasn't doubting you buddy. I was just wanting some details. I've already special ordered the Tekin. My truggy ends tonight on Ebay and it;s already hit reserve w/15 watchers so it'll give me enough cash to purchase a brushless system. Thanks again for all the help and opinions!

Is a brushless system the complete answer to the overheating problem? "ANY" brushless system, not just the Losi? Novak Goat, Sidewinder, etc?

Sorry to ask so many times/ways, but I need to be sure about what I buy. I'm about 20% comp 80% play, so I need something that will run for over 5 mins without overheating, but without spending a fortune.

Just get an 18.5 goat and you will be good.

Trust me when you see some of the stuff that Jake does, you might be saying..."Duh, why didn't I think of that" LOL. Maybe I can get Rubbaneck to shoot a vid for us too?

Finally thanks to all that have waited on this Crawler and to our team guys for their help. I hope that you will be pleased with the Comp Crawler.

Can we please get some tips from the drivers, even if the video will be a while. After getting the rig up and running, I wan to work on tuning it and learning to drive it. Would love to have some more set up advice from team drivers and some driving style advice!

I noticed I use my dig to get the front tires started up stuff alot more than on my axial. Especially when its an almost vertical climb for them.

The best way I found out to drive is to relax and be one with the rig.
Take your time. All though I must say that the stock coil setup is a little on the soft side so I threaded the rear to about an inch and the fronts to 3/4 of an inch. Seems to have less body roll on side hills. Ill go to my buddies sometime soon and get a vid of it and show it to you guys.
