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!

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


2. Can I convert the wheel hex adapters to 24mm?
Yes, with this kit:

3. How many cell does the stock ESC support?
6s



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.
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.
