    Wouldn't run a 4500kv motor at 3s personally. I would stick with 2S

    Now if you want a 2S battery recommendation I do have a RC18b that I use a 2S in, and the battery is pretty cheap(if in stock).


    As for the diffs I'd ust replace em if they strip. No real point in going through the work. I used a 4800kv motor on 2S in my HPI recon which has a plastic diff, and the diff didn't strip(rest of the vehicle got totaled though, but the diff was still fine )

    Ok that sounds good to me. Could you give me the name and possibly the web address for the battery you are using for your 18b please. One more question, Does the plastic spur gear strip easily because my truck is starting to make a nasty noise when i give it full throttle while using the 1100 reedy nimh battery and that is what i suspect is going on, but iam not sure.
    Thank you for your response and help

    http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-25c-1550-2s1p.html one I have


    http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-25c-1800-2s1p.html MIGHT fit as its measurements are almost the same(seems to be a tad taller though)

    As for the spur look at it to see if its worn your gear mesh might be off, or something got in and chewed it up with how its unprotected(there is an aftermarket part that covers it). Could be your diff though you might have to take it apart to check it out.

    If you want aftermarket parts http://thetoyz.com/associated/rc18t/100/ Its where I got my spur gear cover. They have stronger spur gears of different tooth count too along with a pile of other things(although for some reason the SCx10 stuff is mixed in the RC18t section)
