Deffinately 64 pitch. They are much quieter.

48dp, much easier to mesh and less likely to strip

64p is a little smoother/quieter, but can break teeth way easier and be more difficult to get a proper mesh.

48p is stronger and is easier to mesh

I ran 64p for close to a year before I ever stripped a spur, but then went through 3 in about a week, so I switched to 48p. I doubt I'll ever go back to 64p.

17.5 boosted is the slowest class I race now. If I was just running 17.5 blinky or slower, then I might still use 64p, because I think it might have slightly less resistance, but with the forces my motors put on the gears, I don't trust 64p anymore.

The car comes with 48p.

Sure, you don't really need stronger gears for the gutless blinky classes you guys tend to race in the US, but much of the rest of the world aren't a bunch of sandbagging pussies.

Another plus for 64p is tighter gear ratios for fine tuning.

Anyone who can't set the gear mesh on 64p probably shouldn't be racing TC anyways. (Banter back-atcha)

yes, 64p is smoother, quieter and can raise or lower FDR by finer increments. I know a couple of guys who use 64p for mod, but I've also seen them DNF from stripping spurs.

Just a personal preference, but I find I drive better/faster when I have more confidence in my car's ability to take a bit of abuse and still finish even if that means it might not be quite as efficient. It's also why I don't use ECS most of the time. I trust the kit CVDs far more.

Of course you do know that there was a batch of bad 64p Xray gears that came out too.

I have my mod car (4.5T) geared at around 8.0 FDR

I'd guess you would want to be somewhere around 8.5 FDR for a 3.5T
