The track is pretty small, with a straight around 80-90ft.
How many teeth would you recommend i go down from the quads?
I have yet to race the thing, and have spent most of my track time practicing, therefore running the motor alot longer than I would in a race. (Gets real hot if ya run it even with a 24T pinion for 10+ mins)
With the 24T its pretty close in speed to the race geared quad mags, though I am still accelerating when its time to back off for the turn.
Should I go to a 23T or lower? or should I just see how hot she gets in my first qualifier? +)
I wouldn't necessarily call 90 ft straight a small track but my final gear ratio was around 5.8 and motor temp was around 165 Deg/
