I just built a touring car, an Associated TC3 with a Novak SS5800 Brushless setup. I'm new to RC cars and have no idea what spurs and gears I need. Could someone with this setup please tell me what to buy?
The novak site has specific instructions for the brushless setup in a TC3 (as well as others). www.teamnovak.com Go to the download section and download the addendum. It will tell you exactly gearing to use.
For bashing around a parking lot a 22 pinion with a 72 spur would be a good starting place. Novak recommends a 7.3 overall ratio which would be a 24.66 tooth pinion (lol). Check the temps after every couple minutes if you plan on running closer to the 24 or 25 tooth ratios.
Brushes? We don't need no stinking brushes!!!
