Rampage XB-E 1/5 questions
 
I bought the Rampage XB-E and have a few questions:

1. What is the gear pitch, will the HPI and Castle pinion gears work? What is the shaft size on the stock motor (castle is 8mm).
2. Can I convert the wheel hex adapters to 24mm?
3. How many cell does the stock ESC support?
4. What are the stock gear options to gear up? I see the pinion is 10 and 11 but I want it taller and to have more options to adjust as needed.

Thanks for the help!

I'm pretty sure it's a 5mm shaft.

Yes, with this kit:

All you need to gear your XBE is on that website:

thanks guys!

Who sells 1.5 mod harden steal gears? I would like to use the steel spur and a harden steel pinion.

I saw those but they are for a 8MM shaft. The stock motor comes with 5MM.

Kershaw sells a bore reducer also.

Oops, didn't noticed they were 8mm.

Actually, I learned that Rc-monster.com has reducers, so 8MM will work as long as you get the reducer.

You can use the RAMTech-RC adapters to run HPI or aftermarket wheels and tires.
