Alright.

I was running a 5.5T motor with my Nosram Martix Evolution ISTC speed controller. I had the standard 116T 64P spur gear with a 26T pinion. The car was fast, but generated alot of heat.

Now Im running a 13.5T motor with the same speed controller with a 48P spur gear and 26T pinion gear. The car lasts forever and heat isnt an issue.

I converted to 48P because my local hobby shop doesnt sell 64p pinions, and so I can experiment with the wide range of gears I have currently. I purchased my spur gear from R.A.B Hobbies: http://www.rabhobbies.com.au/estore/...ducts_id/10465

Fits perfectly without having to modify the car.

Bomber, you'll most likely want to be geared around 7.5:1 for 10.5 boosted.

With the kit spur you're looking at pinions in the 33-39 range.

I don't understand the reason you want to use a 96 spur though? You're unlikely to be able to run the ratios you need with that spur, unless you're running blinky?

Look in the back of your Yokomo BD7 instruction manual. Theres a gear ratio for every spur gear that is likely to work

Where in the U.S. can I purchase a 48P spur gear that will be a direct fit for the BD7.

Where do you race your car? If your local track has a store for parts, that would be your best bet.

I race 17.5 blinky, with my 64p spur, i've never stripped anything, as long as you do the mesh properly. If you want to go 48p, you're going to need to look for thinner spurs, or get flat heat screws to fit 3mm thick spur gears (48 or 64p).

We only have one hobby shop in my area and they only sale traxxas and associated parts. I have to buy everything online. If I want to stay with 64p (96t) what pinion gears would you recommend. Lrp sxx, 10.5 Orion VST, medium asphalt track. I usually purchase from amainhobbies or towers.

Too late with that one. Just purchased LRP flow worksteam competition speed controller off RC mart for 200 AUD + shipping. What a bargain.

Also just a question Jack, what gearing are you running with your 13.5 class?

Thanks
Bill
