Just curious what the weight of your "heavy" buggy is?

I've got a 6:1 ratio (10T Drive to 60T Driven) and it scoots out from a dig. I wouldnt mind maybe a 5.5:1 to get a little more top end out of it, but I love kicking the *** out on demand.

I think mine is 650lbs without people. Doesnt really seem to notice when people are in it either...
