Question
Gearing help

I'm looking to get a little more top speed out of my nitro rustler what should I do? The stock settings are 20:70. I'm looking into a 84 tooth spur gear. Also what could I do to my clutch bell? Thanks for the help

that would actually slow it down. you'll want to get more like a 65 tooth spur to speed up, or something like a 24tooth clutch bell.

That didn't work. The engine wouldn't moveback far enough for the gears to mesh together. I instead tried out the 72t gear that also comes with the rustler and it was amazing how much 2 teeth make a difference! I will instead try to order a 66t traxxas spur gear and see how that works out
