    RC18T vs. RC18MT (Which one to get?)

    My interest is essentially to stick a couple sedan wheels on it. I will probably only run it on asphalt. Maybe with some hard compound drift wheels maybe RDLogics/HPI super drift type so I don't roll the thing so much. I'd rather slide than roll I'd like to throw a mamba in it and enjoy its speed. I would also like to mount a Hot Bodies Minizilla body on it. Probably want to use some Speedway Pal 10mm offset wheels on it too. I hope that gives you an idea of what I want to do, just curious as to what you'd suggest.

    If there the same price and your changing the body and tires it won't matter.

    yeah if you are changing the body and wheels anyways there is no difference just the gearing rc18MT = 10/60

    gearing better suited for those gear??? what are you talking about


    he said hes putting a mamba in there. He will have NO torque problems with 14/60 hell he could even but it up a notch or two. there is no reason to have the torque of the rc18mt unless your running stock motor.

    Hmmm are you sure? have you ever try it? I think not, its a very different gearing if we are speaking off brushless motors and brushed motors, A mamba 6800 would run very hot on 14/60 and mt tires, maybe to a dangerous level..

    its not about power, its about heat and work the motor has to do, if u increase the size of the wheels u have to lower your gearings is a good rule of thumb
