c ya there cowboy at 4 30. if you need to call me 214 five 14 2030

Just tested the Wraith with the underdrive gears. Sure didnt do much if any for the
torque twit squat !! I did change the oil in the left rear shock from 80 down to 60 though.
May go back to 80 and see what happens.

Hopefully it will help on the arbor hills death climb !!

Yea - your rig is running just about perfect. Gonna switch my diff gears back around today - back to what it was AND gonna go 2S - never thought I would say that - but too much wheel spin with 3S.

"Gonna switch my diff gears back around today"
The UD gears didn't help with the hill climbs?

Well to make a long story short - I installed the UD gears to try and reduce my torque twist. It did not help at all. But I remember reading that flipping the front and rear diffs may help too. When I did - that changes what direction the motor need to run - so I switched 2 wires on the motor. But not good. Junior gave me the correct advise - if you flip the gears and the motor wires - you MUST remove the sensor wire. I did. It ran OK - but not smooth at all.

So today I flipped them back and chnged the motor wires back and plugged in the sensor cable. I also tried running 2S instead of 3S. Not as much torques twist - but still very evident it is there.

May take some getting used to - 2S I mean.

The UD gears do help I believe. It also helps it wheelie !!!

I may need to go up a tooth or 2 on my pinion. I want to reduce my wheel spin. So I'll have to experiment with 2S and 3S.
