Sounds like your track is pretty tight. I would stay around a 4.0 to 4.1. Going to low you will never get to top speed on a short straight. Running a 4.04 I am getting to top speed before the end of our 90' straight. You can get those spurs at most hobby shops and online like amain or tower.
great!! i will prefer the 96/48, one last question, are those gears 48 pitch??thanks, i really appreciate the help..

Yeah at the Southern Nationals I started practice at a 3.84 and dropped to a 3.9 something and dropped a second a lap. So definitely will want to have a few pinions both directions for tuning to the track and what works best for your driving style.

AE as far as I know, doesnt have pinion gears(not 64p), but I use the Trinity/Epic pinions...I started using them back at Snowbirds and they seem to work really good...

Spider(James) might have something better...I ran his TC6 around our track last Wed, and it was extra quiet...I was meaning to ask him what gears he was using ...

Not being current on the home made dyno thread, whats the best way to tell if your VTA motor is a dog or if it is your battery?

easiest thing would be to see if you can borrow a battery from someone at your track that is known to be good. If your lap times dont pick up, then you know that the battery isnt the limiting factor.

Robinson Racing gears are always good, but my favorite are RW pinion gears. Speedtech RC carries them. They are SUPER quiet.

Had a friend dyno my three motors for the Southern Nats. The worst one on the dyno turned out to be the best. Go figure! The track is still the best dyno.

This may have been answered before, but is the "build-a-ballistic" 25.5 legal for actual VTA racing?

I think so, so long as you don't use any tuning rotors. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong!
