Timezone II is probably the best track I've ever been too. When I ran for Corally I went down there for a NWIC series race when Jeff Dayger came across the country to race there. It was a blast... I just wish it was closer. Me being almost in Canada makes it a pretty good drive to go down there haha. Mark, Rick, and Richard are awesome. Probably some of the coolest people I've met in RC.

The new setup in Seattle may not be a permanent track, but it is awesome how Todd (club pres) and a bunch of other dedicated racers brought this whole thing together so quickly. I haven't been racing much since SIR closed down, and I'm really excited that Seattle RC Racers has been established.

Like I said before, we're having the first cool awesomeness special event race this weekend. I'll be posting a rubber tire carpet setup for you guys after the weekend is done with a small report.

kk kool. i said time zone one tho lol

im getting geared up for outdoor, that is where my heart is at.

It just has a more "fun" feel to be racing out in the warm sun and on pavement.
Not to mention the occasional spectators

I'm using KAWADA. Good quality and you can get them from rcmarket in all range. They start from 88 so probably you can get some combination for your final ratio.

When I had mine, I used the Xenon's that speedtech sells. I had pretty good luck with them.

The problem is, WHICH combination to use ... i mean, here at the forums all people says spurs 70 - 74 ... and pinions on the 33 - 36 range ... and if i see the setups online from cyclone S users on other sites, they say use 100++ spurs and 40+ pinions ... so, where to go ?

Its for 13.5 brushless 6 cells nimh ... asphalt rubber

cya,

Pat

There are 2 ways, use 64p gears and then You will end with using 90-92 spur and 45+ pinions, if you go 48p then it will be around 70 spur and 33 pinion.
Last summer i was using 91 and 51 gears for my Cyclone S(with internal ratio 2.4375).
I don't know condition of your track, but if there is a lot of small stones/dust then i would suggest you to go with 48p gears, as they will strip less. My personal experience with this, as last year I stripped some spurs/pinions due to this fact(was using 64p ones)
