Well that depends on what the final drive ratio you're trying to achieve. Depends on the track you're running too. What motor do you have in it? Is it the TC or the earlier model because the have different "transmission" ratios. In my TC I'm currently running the 100 spur and a 50 pinion. That put me at a 4.7 FDR. With a 13.5 you could go as low as 4.2-4.4 without any problem

Just in case this doesn't help I know that this link will. It made my life a lot easier. Gear chart Just punch in your car info. If you have the TC you'll have to manually enter the trans ratio which is 2.167 to get the chart you need.

Thanks for the quick reply, on one chassis im running 17.5 and the other Im running 13.5, the reason I asked the question that way was so I could order different pinions to play around with the FDR. In 17.5 i running a 4.0 the my Tekin Pro but would like to get a little higher and a little lower to see results. In 13.5 i shoot for 4.8 fdr and looking to do the same. I dont want to order gears that will not physically fit the chassis. That is what I am trying to avoid.

Not sure of the biggest pinion you can get on there. Like I said I have the 50 on it and there's room for more. Not sure how much more but I can find out tonight. I have a bunch of new pinions waiting at home for me. I think I went as high as a 52 on my purchase.

That Gear chart link is very helpful. You should go check it out. You have the option to have your gearing at the begining, middle or end of the chart you create.

The smallest spur gear I've gotten in mine is a 76t - I was that with a 64t pinion, I would have try a 65t but the shop didn't have anymore in stock

this was with my VTA 4cell/17.5

I just got mine to fit as of tonight. I had to have it milled down to about .045 thick which equated to half the thickness being taken off. After additional work on the top deck mount and the screw, I'm happy to say it now fits my 5000 packs. It's going to be a big help in limiting the pack from side to side movement. I'll be testing/racing it this Sunday for the first time as well. The fit feels real sweet!

Mike E I think your math is off if your running the TC your ratio would be 4.33
not 4.7 .

Thanks for the advice Korey. I've got a heap of alloy parts coming through Customs at the moment so hopefully they will solve the problem. If not, all I can do is assume that the holes in the chassis plate have been mis-drilled and either replace the chassis plate or ream out the mounting holes for the front pivot block so that I can adjust it sideways and equalise the toe-in.

Is anybody else aware of a problem with mis-drilled chassis plates ?

#61360 Low Gear unit (Blue)

when you use these units, you will be able to have smoother drive train too,due to the less angle belt mounts. Even if you're not brush less system user, these parts are still good for you guys.

in addition, we will soon have 18T drive pulley that is 2 tooth bigger than the original one. This will make the drive train way more free!!

We have changed the name for those to "Brushless Motor Mount". Part numbers are still the same.

Thanks,

Clint - did you want that BMI kit? Check back a page or two about what I have for you if you really wanted it.

Clint hasen't ran a Cyclone for the last 6 months, so I don't think he'll need a BMI chassis for one...

Yeah, too bad he quit HB. He would be faster with a Cyclone.

You all know he was slow in the first place but was just a little faster with an HB
