i am assuming you went from a stock 27 turn motor ?? to a 17 right ??

correct me if i ' m wrong guys .... but i think you would need to drop 3 - 5 teeth on your pinion gear ...... this will give you longer run times , keep your esc from blowing up , give quicker acceleration , and you would still have about the same top speed because the modified motor will turn more R . P . M ' s .....

Nick - Sorry I didn ' t respond sooner , I was away covering the ROAR Off - road Fuel Nats . Go with FLYBOY7 ' s suggestion . Drop about 3 teeth on the pinion .
