Default Gearing

I'm going to the 128 tooth spur and was wondering if that means I HAVE to go to say a 27 or so pinion. The highest I have is a 23 pinion right now am going to get a 27 this weekend but wanted to go ahead and put a pinion on my motor... Thing is, the 23 doesn't look like it'll mesh properly to the new spur... Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks!

Jitsu, for what class of racing? Try to maintain the same amount of final drive ratio with your new spur.

Has anyone else tried the new spur? Any differances?

Are you talking about the kevlar spur gear? If so I have ran it for a while now.....its a spur gear. I mean the only thing that I noticed with it is its harder to strip and it runs a little more straight then the blue ones did.

Jitsu....not saying that your dumb or anything but make sure the pinions are the same pitch.....lol. I have used a 23t with the 128 spur with out any problems....maybe you have a bad gear.

I'm using a 128 64p kevlar spur and using between 37 - 39 tooth pinions. Using Monster stock motors on a reasonably medium to large sized track which has a large straight but not a particularly tight infield. The 128 spur seems fine but the motor can get hot on hot days.

For me, using 23T motor, and I have green Spur gear with 29,30,31,33 on pinion gears.

why I use 48 pitch coz I feel 23T motor is quite power in low RPM of the motor.

Maybe later I will change to 64 pitch gear and feel the different.

There have some option parts which can change spur gear easily,
so...I will thinking about this options.

I don't think I have the right pitch pinion gear, cause it's the same pinion I was using with my other 88 tooth spur... Does that make sense?

OHH, you now have a 64P spur gear with 48P pinions...that would be a problem. I would suggest (depending on how big your track is picking up from 28-34 teeth in 64P.

hmm... that's pretty high for the monster stock... i use a 33/128 on a mid size track (final drive 7) maybe a tooth or 2 up if its pretty big, or has a long straight... i guess that's why your motor gets hot... over geared maybe.

wrong pitch... just to add to Brian's post, might i suggest 27 to 39, if you run 9Turn and up mod motors, stock and 19T.

with regards to weight, there shouldn't be a problem with the aluminum ones... i just really like them, so that i don't strip them in a race... stripping is my number 1 reason.

Hi I have a XXX-S and I would like to find out how to properly set up my Losi shocks.
I have built them many times and they are different each time.
After they sit for a while and they get compresed they sound like there is air in them but after you compress them a few times it goes away.

HOW DO YOU KNOW THEY ARE GOOD??????????

No offence, but the Losi shocks are the absolute easiest shocks I have ever built and I have built all brands including HPI, associated , Tamiya, duratrax, ofna, integy, and kyosho shocks!!!!! and for what it's worth the hard coated losi shocks with Ti-nitride shafts are as smooth as the ultra slick Tamiya pieces I have built.... and when built right hardly ever leak!!!!
