My friend went from a 27t to a 21t in his drifter and it cut his run time in half... Also the motor gets so hot you can't touch it... Not sure what brand it is. Its like a neon pink color. Any ideas why this happens?

My guess would be that he didn't properly set the mesh.

If he's using the same exact pinion, that's why. The motor could be drastically overgeared. Tell him to install a pinion that is about 4-5 teeth smaller. That should get him in the ballpark, and increase his runtimes a bit.

it could be that he is using more throttle to attain higher motor rpms so he is using alot more, espescially with drifting.
