Changing pinion and spur gear in a Hurricane XTE
Ive done this with my old DuraTrax Evader 9 years ago and it was easy considering it was a rear mounted motor that can slide further or closer to the spur for gear changing.
I am new to red cats and Im going to be picking up my Hurricane tomorrow and I want to gear the thing for higher top speed.
I know I need to get a bigger pinion and smaller spur. What I want to know is, is with the different sized gears, am I able to adjust the motor to accommodate the different sizes? Since the gears will be different I will have to slide the motor closer or further? If so, how do I do this. Since I have not yet worked on a red cat I dont know how easy this is to accomplish.
Also, if anyone can point me to a video on this to get a better picture, that would be ideal.
