008 FDR question
I've been experiencing a problem with my 008, where it keeps eating up drive belts. This is caused because of the drive belt rubbing on the inside of the spur where the set screw goes.
I'm currently running the 2.375 gear ratio and heard that changing to the 1.75 gear ratio may fix the issue because of the larger rear pully would create more space above and below the pinion (makes sense).
However, I'm running a mad Scientist 27t Motor (Brushed) with the gear ratio of 8.31.
Making the change to the lower gear ratio, means that the highest FDR I can get with a 84t 24p pinion/spur combo is 6.8. Am I correct in assuming that event though I've changed the gear ratio, I should still be trying to run my vehicle with a 8.31 FDR?
Or does changing the gear ratio mean I have to find a new FDR that will also not burn up my motor?
FYI, I currently only have 48p spurs and pinions.
