Thanks for clarifying. When it said 12T I thought it meant any 12T bc it didn't specify. A 550 12T is equivalent to a 540 17T though so yes it will give a little bit more power
If all else fails, my MMP started working again and I still have a spare 4600kv motor. If I gear it low I won't have much issues with cogging. I have two stampede platforms I geared 9/54 which is the lowest you can go. With 3.92 internal ratio it made the final drive low enough to let me crawl without cogging and yet one goes 27.9mph and the other goes 30mph. The TH has an internal ratio of about a 6.5 in 2nd gear so I'm sure it will do just fine if I gear low with that same setup
That depends. The titan is going to make you go faster, but have less low end torque, than the stock 19T motor that it comes with.
When you said this:
I want to setup my TH for U4RC without actually racing in it but I can't see the pictures of people's setups. I don't want to spend much money either (for example, I wana keep the front end stock). I'm just interested in suspension setups (most important) and good all-around tires to use. I plan on switching over to the Titan 12T for sure for the extra torque. The ESC can handle it. It'll be slower but more efficient
that's backwards, a 12T motor is going to be faster than the stock 19T motor, but have less low end torque. If you're thinking about running the TH like the mashers video you posted, you will burn up the Titan because it is less efficient at low speed and the loss of efficiency will turn into heat, which will fry the motor.
The sweet spot for a TH is between 3000kv and 3500kv for speed and trail running. running a 4600kv motor is going to be hard to control at low speeds, and will put a lot of stress on those transmission gears. they don't hold up as well as the traxxas transmission. I've owned a TH five different times, and I always end up getting rid of them because they're quirky and small, even though it's a cool design. It may sound like the math works for running that MMP in the TH, but there's a reason no one runs that high a KV for trailing.
Whenever someone replies "k thks m8 lol" i die a little inside.
still runnin' cars like I clean my teeth: with brushes.
