Man, what is with this? I tried to respond to this twice already, and
each time it got dropped?!?! Third time a charm ...?

Offroad I use 96/22, this is the gear ratio that comes with the kit. I
also use very large tires; they are the size of ProLine's Mashers,
although I do not know what my tire's brand is.
Onroad I use 90/31, this gear ratio I took out of my HPI Rally. The
tires that you get with the Dodge kit, the V-Groove, IMHO suck -
absolutely no grip unless my driveway is perfectly clean. I think the
DirtHawgs (that come with the Buggy kit) are much better. I'm gonna
hafta invest in some of those.

Are you sure? I don't mean to question you, but according to my manual
that comes with the MT, 96/16 should not be able to physically fit in
the MT. Anyway, this should be slugish. Go bigger pinion or smaller
spur for more speed, the other way for torque.
