Rc18 gearing

What's the highest tooth pinion that the stock spur gear and drivetrain can handle? 14? 15?

Or do I have to upgrade to an aluminum spur gear along with the pinion.

If i remember correctly i think its 15,........but you can also play with other high tooth count pinions and give it a try. I think i was running a 15 with mine.

I dont think he's trying to overgear the motor....he's trying to find that sweet spot.
