    Your running 19/47? What engine/wheels/tires are you running?

    Running that tall of gearing, your going to want to stick with alloy shoes. The HPI heavy duty bells have held up well for me against a steel spur.

    I tried 18/47 on mine with an LRP30S2 in it. It would go fine, but the clutch would slip a lot in the grass. Think I'm running 17/47 now and it's a happy medium for speed and acceleration even in the lawn. I only have the 2 speed trans though. Not sure what you have.
