actually theres a middletown in louisville haha. its a small store but i like it.
so if im goiong to be doing some bashing and some speed runs im best off with the 4600kv?
ohh and for my rustler what gearing should i use?
what exact battery do you use btw?
LOL I was gonna say, there's is no way you go that far up to OH to get parts LOL!!!
Yeah the 4600 gives more gearing options. Well the slash and rustler gearing is close to the same since they both share the same tranny. Castle recommends a 16 to 22 tooth pinion with stock spur or larger and like I said I started at a 17T pinion with 86 spur and made it all the way down to a 15T pinion with 90 spur and couldn't get the temps where I wanted which is why I got the alum trans case which I'd recomend you do as well. I think some of my heat trouble too is the Slash is a heavier truck than the Rusty. I got the cheap $35 Integy tranny case which I heard is pretty decent piece (rare for Integy to be a good piece). The Castle combos comes with a gearing setup chart and all the info you need. Also if you get the MM combo go ahead and spend the $20 for the Castle Link so you can play with all the ESC adjustments on your computer.
The lipos I use are the SPC house brand red packs. I have 2 7.4V 5000mah packs and one 3s 11.1V 5000mah pack which is INSANE. They changed the pack size to fit perfectly in the Rustlers, Bandits, and Pede's which is why they are having trouble keeping them in stock, plus like I said the packs are awesome and priced good too. For charging I use the Onyx230 and an Astro Flight Blinky Balancer.
Oh also the run times on those 5000mah packs are between 20-30minutes.
