    You can push the gearing up while keeping an eye on motor temps. Also 3S if your not running it already.

    Get a base line temp on your motor and grab a bunch of pinions. Start low and move up till your happy and your motor is too

    Probably not the answer you want to hear, but I'd rather give your truck a HUGE increase in performance, power handling, and adjustability and install a decent sensored brushless system in it - perhaps a HobbyWing with a 13.5t/2500kv motor

    If you do that, you can do everything you currently do, but you'll have more wheel speed than you could want (if you decide to use it), program it to creep and crawl as well as the brushed setup, and run it reliably on 3S

    I'm just sayin'

    Drop a 35T motor into it. You will have an increase in Wheel speed yet still retain enough torque for crawling.. and wont cost you an arm and a leg..
    Snow Panther, Integy, Hackmoto and RC4WD all have rebuildable 35T motors for under $50

    I can't disagree with this idea if you want to stay with brushed - I created a trail truck out of my Losi Nightcrawler and, before I couldn't resist the brushless speed needed to make a Nightcrawler interesting between obstacles, I ran a Hackmoto 35t brushed motor on 2S and was really happy with the quality of what is a mass-produced motor - it was very nice at crawling speeds and was built right, properly shimmed, spun smoothly, was really well-balanced, had a really true comm that wore the brushes very evenly, and the bearings were very smooth

    What motor do you currently have? - while my 35t Hackmoto is properly used up, I have an unused 55t Hackmoto motor that has been broken in but is unused besides that

    If you're currently running a worn out factory motor, this motor will certainly perk up your truck - it's also rated to handle 3S and ran cool and happy in my Nightcrawler during break in (and Nightcrawlers are notorious for having lots of drag and drawing amps)

    The motor is the V2 version, is in its factory packaging with 12ga Tekin leads attached - here's the specs from yeah racing:

    They sell on eBay for about $20-$25 after shipping, but I'd be willing to sell it to you for $15, shipped free to the lower 48, from Texas

    Let me know if you're interested and moderators, if I am doing something that is not in line with proper decorum, please correct me so I can learn the proper procedures
