I've been trying to get an answer for that since day one of me
getting into 12th. From what I have found out, their is NO
answer for it. You keep getting replies that say "It depends on
the track". I've seen people use spurs from the high 70's all the
way to 100. From what I can make out, all that matters is the
rollout. Depending on the compination of Spur/Pinion, you can
get the same rollout using an number of different combinations
of spur/pinion. Somebody told me that the norm is 100 tooth
spur because its easier to do the math with a clean number like
100. You then change the pinion to get the desired rollout.
If anybody has a good link to explain 12th settings or has a good
answer, please let us 12th newbies know.
