    Well my tnx running big joes and 25% will do about 45-48mph
    It does about 40 with stock tyres.But big joes are larger diameter so it does about 45mph now.Hmmm i wonder what would happen with hot bodies 7inch tyres

    I have a t-maxx with an XTM .18 and also put in a 64t spur gear. It probably does about 40mph easily.

    Whats wrong with using what you have? as far as the drift tires they handle up to 2 rings on ea. tire all the way around but most guys find that 1 ring works as good if not better, 27turn motors work great dont need alot of straight away torque, RED
