Ok, assuming I can find my site login/FTP user/password, I will need the tooth counts of diff, transmission, spur/pinion. For the trans, I need all tooth counts. Stock tire size too.

Holy crap, people still use that? Everything in there is so old. I was actually thinking about not renewing the domain this year.

You could always gear up a 4 pole more to compensate for lack of max power at max rpm, within reason of course. Typically top speeds are only attained for a relatively short time compared to the rest...

Since kv is inversely proportional to turn count:

I'll try to explain. You want the least amount of resistance between the caps and the ESC. This is why you use low-ESR caps. Shorter and/or larger wires have less resistance. Any resistance will...
