Good motor choice, I had one in mine for about 6 months, I just swapped in a Holmes Hobby 35T expert in mine to pick up a little speed.Your right on the loss of top end speed . You can swap to a different pinion and spur and gain a little back.
Also not sure if your using Lipo batteries or not but they increase speed .

Im not worried about speed at all. Just want crawl ratio. My Wrangler is the same way. Just did a 4 speed Atlas with 10.7:1 ahahha

Any clue what that clicking noise Im getting in reverse could be? Do the higher turn motors do anything like that?

Clicking could be a busted tooth in either the axles or tranny.

everything looked fine when I had it all apart. The truck has only been used a few times. No way it can be a a chipped gear. Does the back lash or mash between the pinion gear on the motor and the spur gear have to be anything exact?

Your spur gear on the motor should be centered on the pinion gear of the tranny forward and back. As far as mesh you don't want it extremely tight. I run the motor gear in tight to the tranny gear than back it off maybe the thickness of 2 sheets of paper.

went wheeling today. Laid out a course. Gonna mark it in paint dots and have some Jeep club buddies run their rigs. Truck did well, thinking about steering motor upgrades.

I just put a Holmes Hobby servo in my wraith with a 10amp BEC. No problem turning when bound up in rocks.

Ran into another issue. Truck is beeping when I turned it on. No throttle or steering. Read up a bit and figured I needed to bind it. BUT of course I lost the bind plug. Made one out of a servo extension via a vid I found. When through the whole process and nothing. The light on the receiver keeps blinking like its waiting for the signal. But never works. My Batt is good. I did however find when I opened the little box to plug in the bind plug there was some green corrosion on it. Must have gotten some salt water. Possibly the problem? Im still new at this stuff. Any input is always appreciated.
