    I have that exact castle system in an ecx torment 2wd. It is currently geared with 19t pinion and 87t spur but I can run 2 5300mah packs through it and it stays super cool so I know there is a good bit of room to gear up from there.

    I would recommend getting the robinson racing pinion gear set. They come with I believe 6 different sized gears so you can gradually (2 teeth at a time) walk the gears up until your either fast as you want or hit the heat threshold for that system.

    RRP1050 is the part number for the 48 pitch "even" gears. It's just the even numbers between 16-26

    that is what I used on the Ecx, because it has 48pitch gears stock. I am not sure if the stock arrma comes with 48 pitch gears or not.

    I think the 15t pinion is stock size. You would want to try maybe a 17 or 18 tooth pinion to start going faster.

    Also make sure your car comes with the 32 pitch gears before ordering a new pinion.

    You want the gear pitch to stay the same but to get more top speed you either need to increase teeth on the pinion gear, or decrease teeth on the spur gear.

    Gotcha. it looks like you have the 48 pitch gears then. You can use that 15t -57 combo but you will also need to purchase AR310405
    that is the 57t spur that is the correct pitch

    if you ran that and were comfortable with the temps you had afterward, you could also make the jump to AR310404 which is the 54 tooth spur on the chart that will increase your top speed even more!

    I recommend making the switch to the bigger pitch gears. they are a bit noisier but very easy to mesh and are strong.

    32 pitch gears are bigger than 48. to make it more confusing there is also "mod .8" mod .8 gears work with 32pitch

    here is a picture showing the difference, and why 48 and 32 don't mesh together. left pinion is 32p right is 48p
