BUMP!


So I decided to dust off the cobwebs and dirt from my KINGCAB that I had stored at my folks house. Its not in horrible shape, but I figured I might throw a cheap Fut. ESC in it and have something I can drive around with my son.

I have a Maxtec Aftershock stock motor and was wondering how I should gear it. I saw in the manual that it has an 18t for a stock (guessing silvercan 540) but I don't want it to be ridiculous, but I want it to be fun. Thoughts?

I'll post pics soon. BTW, the 2 Kingcab bodies I have both feel thin to me.

I Ran mine with a monster stock motor, the stock 70t spur gear and a 16t pinion and boy is it fun.

Don't build the diff as per manual. Add at least 3 of the 0.05 spacers per side and only add grease like you would with a pro AE or Losi diff - sparingly!
