Thanks
Have a look at an online hobby store, like amain, and search for idler gears. There's a big variety of sizes/ pitches. You might also want to look for other gears, like pinion gears or differential gears, depending on what you're after.

Here's a link that might be useful:

Default ???

could somebody tell me which way is the right, to get 25degr kickup for tlr22 bugy:
1. I only need to add a 25degr shim over 20degr insert,
or
2. I must replace put 25degr. shim instead of 20degr. one.

So which is the right way?

#2 is the correct answer.
I like 20degrees of kickup way more than the 25degree kickup. Felt better and for more traction I use the 1degree anti squat.

Thanks for advice!

I already did it in a such a way- replaced 20degr and put in it place 25degr shim + replaced caster blocks 10degr to 5degr and buggy on small high bite carpet track become undrivable - on each corner on entering the corner back of the car was not possible to keep on rails it spined out (tires where schumi minipins - a little worn, but still good for such a track) , so I started to think that I did it wrong...but yeah if thats is the right way to get 25degr. kickup, then I also like much better 20degr. kickup

What effect could give if I use 20degr. kick up with 5degr. caster blocks (instead of 10degr.) - will it make car more edgy or will it car cam down?

No problem.
Edgy entering corners, at least on my testing. But I don't race on carpet yet, you should try changing caster just to see.

Does anyone have a good setup for a big 1/8 size track, mostly loomy dirt and rough? I have the Dustin Evans setup on it now but not sure if thats the best for my track. Here is the track

Any good setup for a 12-13 sec tight carpet track. Jumps are carpeted too.
