Hello Rc world. My ecx torment has a Reedy 3500kv motor with 2.8 wheels. My gear setup is 18/54 t. What gear set would you run for more top end speed for bashing and some wheelies. I wanna at least reach speeds around 40mph on baseball fields. 20181027_174755.jpg

Are those 48p gears because I’m wondering how you even managed to fit 18/54 t in there (stock is 87t spur.)

For a good bashing setup on 3500kv I would say use stock spur with 19-21t pinion depending on temps. With this gearing you will most likely reach speeds of 40mph and I noticed if I have my motors geared for lower temps they usually go right around 40mph anyway. If you want speed just see what the biggest one will fit but watch temps.
I currently run and race 3000kv on 23t pinion with stock spur. It doesn’t get that hot considering how long I run it. In the summer it’s usually a different story, like can I withstand the heat?!

Yes, I'm using 32p gears

With that gearing, how is it not hitting 40? That's much higher gear than stock, and larger tires. How fast are you going now? You using 2s I'm assuming? A 12t pinion with your spur would be about the ratio of comes stock. I went down a tooth on the pinion with 2.8s and a 3100kv. Haven't used a gps on it, but I'm sure it's well over 30.

I never clocked it yet. I know it goes over 40mph, I want it to do 40mph off road without over heating I ment. I'm more of a basher and sometime street runs. Basically I'm looking for a perfect gearing in the middle. For bashing and grass runs

I'll clock it tomorrow and I'll let you know

No speed runs or bashing for today buddy. One of my trans gear set stripped. The middle gear stripped when I finally got the trans open to check things out.
I'll be upgrading to the metal gear set next week, after bills... everything was somewhat ok the other day on 2s. My very 1st time with my 3s Lipo, not even 5mins. Alot of wheelies after- all I did was tighten the spur and 3s. I'm thinking I over tighten my spur gear. I noticed the problem when I ran into the grass area. .. My motor wasn't hot
< no temp gun with me at the time >
