This is the Stage IV Speed Motor/Gearbox kit for Stinger, Dune Racer, and Baja Extreme and Trailster. The Stage IV speed kit is specifically designed for 18 or 24 volts of SLA style batteries. The Massive 775 motors provide insane amounts of torque for off-road and handle 24 volt loads without a care. The gearboxes are made by MLToys specifically for higher-then-stock-speeds.
