Hi Everyone,

Bought a used PW escalade. Battery was shot so ended up going with a 18v battery setup from 12vCustoms. If I want to upgrade the gearbox and battery what do people recommend?

Thanks T

If you're running 18v Our Stage II or higher Escalade gearboxes are the way to go.

Does the Stage 2 have a metal gear? If so how is that working out with the other plastic ones? Also do you sell a gear box repair kit?

Thanks T

Yes, Stage II has hardened steel pinion and first gears. You shouldn't need to do the rest in metal. They handle up to 24v no problem when driven properly and with stock tires. Stage II has a 1 month warranty on nylon gears and lifetime on steel. We also sell all of the stock gears individually on the website if you have a 7R gearbox or Staged kit.
