I run the Pro4 w/ tekin's 203v. and a 17.5 with no problems. One of the fastest top cars at my track against newer shumies and tc5's.

hey guys I am trying to find a good pinion size to match the 98t. I am running a 17.5 motor with a 2s lipo. I was thinking about running a 40t so i can have a good balance of torque and top end what do you guys think?

I ran the GTB/Novak Combo at various size tracks in RCGT.

I ran an 88 spur and a 47-51 pinion. Grab a calculator or go to gearchart.com and see what FDR range that is and adjust to your spur.

Lowest was around 113* and with the 51 tooth i hit 160* around that purple ring in the middle, 130* on the silver part. And that's in the HOT Florida sun.

I've been told that the purple ring holds in massive amounts of heat and that a lot of people remove it.

Your combo of 98/36 is almost the same FDR as my 88/47. You should experience some pretty good rip out of the corner.

Oh dude I most definitely rip through the corners its just my top end is suffering pretty bad. I run on a course where theres a 100+ft straightaway and I get killed after 2/3rds of that distance

I started off with 78 spur and 54 pinion for 17.5 motor FDR 3.5 and changed pinions according to temp.

Is that FDR helping you keep up with the Tekin RS crowd? That's what was killing me.... to the tune of 2 seconds per lap on a large track

I have a tekin and redline motor now. A friend has what you have and this is the gearing I had him try. You can't beat a tekin with ver.203 straight up, but you'll be close in the straights where you were lagging.
