Default Shredder Upgrade Suggestions


I have been bashing my Shredder pretty relentlessly lately. I want to upgrade and get more speed out of it.

Do you think the stock motor could handle dual 3S lipo's if I upgrade to the Hobbywing 150AMP ESC?

If not could you suggest a motor for me? I am pretty electric RC stupid.

Thanks in advance guys.

Maybe you could try changing the pinion gear to get more speed.

You just have to watch your temperature.

Yeah, I should just try that first considering it is a heck of a lot cheaper. To be honest I am even sure what tooth pinion comes on it stock. I guess I'll have to look at that this evening after work.

I was just looking at the online manual. It just says the spur gear is 49T it does not give a pitch. It also does not list a pitch for the pinion gear.
Anyone have any idea's on the pitch? Would hate to buy the wrong pinion just to strip a spur gear.
