based on the specs it shouldn't be horrible in my go fast basher type truck but is it reliable? and will it work for stuff other than crawling i want to fit a 2s (esc can handle it) will that be enough power to break into 30 mph? the truck i want to put it in is a 4wd basher where i can take out the center shaft and drive 2wd because the stock 550 would overheat , this is a 540 so im worried about smoking it in 20 batteries again and loosing power, i also removed the lower cover to allow more air flow

TLDR: is this reedy motor(540) any good to run 2s in my 4wd basher that originally had overheating issues with a 550 i also did something to allow more airflow, will i also lose power

As a rule of thumb, always run the smallest pinion you can.

Or, as John from Holmes Hobbies says, "gear down, volt up".

i figured im going to reduce pinion because spur gear size is limited but will it keep it cool temp wise ? and break 25 on 2s?
