Default RE: Tamiya Blackfoot Upgrades

For gearing, they are pretty limited, their are only two pinion sizes it will accept. That said, you can either change the pinion out for the large one(not sure, think it's a 20 tooth in a .6 mod pitch). Or you could go with a faster motor. As long as you don't go crazy, it should handle brushless power fine.
