Which brand of spurs and pinions best to use on the TC6.1?
Where to buy these? (website)
Sorry for the late reply. I am not sure if I am understanding right. Outdoor I run Associated spur 48 pitch and associated pinions and indoor I run associated spur and crc pinions. Also leespeed makes a good spur gear and pinions and kimbrough also has sput that fits directly as small as 72.
Unfortunately I am really not sure what the minimum tooth count for the car is, I know an 88 sput and 45 pinion will vit but I am really not sure about how small you can go sorry. You can get any final drive as low as 3.0 if need be.

Right now I club race on smooth med traction asphalt and I am using Rick Howharts worlds setup and it has been awesome! Just not sure what I should change first.
By the way we aren't allowed to use traction compound so I use Jaco purple fronts and Jaco pink rears. Is this a good tyre choice?
This particular track I am going to race on is quite large and open to cater for 1/8 scale gas cars. I've got an LRP Flow with Reedy sonic Mach 2 5.0 turn. What gearing and settings would you use? Would a 4.0 turn be a better choice?
Any help will be much appreciated
If the track is big, I would for sure go to a higher wind motor to start. I am sure you can get good speed out of the 5.0 but I beleive the 4.0 would be more suitable if power is an issue. On carpet, I run 25/96 on fairly small track and 41.5mm tires with the following esc setting (V5.0 Stock version) 6/2/0/1/2/3/0 with a 3.5 if that helps.
For a bigger track outdoor I would try for a 4.0 27/96 with the same esc setting and see how it works. If you want to keep the stock software in esc 1.4 I beleive it is then I would go with following setting : 5/3/0/5/5/2/0
Now for setup, I would think the setup tyou are running is a good place to start. and tires are ok but you could try a magenta front for more steering if need be. The other option is to play with the weight distribution of the car considering you are not running on high bite, the sideway batttery might be an option as well to put more weight in the back of the car and gaining more steering.
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.

Is this for 1/12 or touring ? In both case the result will be similar. It will make the car easier to drive getting into the corner and then in the middle of the corner you might gain some more steering middle out as the front end will pull the car out of the turn ( this mainly for Touring car) this usualy works well on high bit tracks.
Hope this helps
