HPI 5 Series gear pitch

I'm looking at using this (5T slipper clutch) (http://www.hpieurope.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=85474) in a custom build.

Thanks!

RE: Batteries???

There is a simpler method for getting a ballpark guess of what increased voltage will do.

Power = Torque x speed.

RE: What type of alum is used in chassie of savage, maxx etc

Yes, you can get 6061 to bend, but you won't get clean tight radius bends out of it that people associate with sheet metal work. Larger radius bends work though.
