I'm a complete noob at all this, so forgive my ignorance. I just recently built this car and am going to be running it on a fairly tight carpet track. What ballpark should I be in as far as gearing goes? I will be running it in the gt class(21.5 motor). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Any other tips also welcome.

start somewhere between 3.5-4fdr depending on track size, check your motor temp every couple laps and gear/time from there.
you will need a spur around 66T 48p or 88T in 64p

Thanks. I have a Tekin RS esc/motor, which has built in temperature monitoring. Is it accurate enough to go by, or do I need another means of measuring it? What should be the max motor temp.?

keep it safe at 160F or less

dont rely on the esc for temp monitoring, use a temp gun

I must say for the $109.00 this kit cost it is very well designed. Stuff goes togather very very well. They did a fine job on this one..

ok so i bought the 88t 64p gear but now the 19t center pulley doesnt fit on it!!! it will not fit flush.

so the question i have is should i cut the center pulley around the screw holes to make it fit flush or grind the spur gear to make it fit flush??

the other problem i have is my dremal is not here so i cant fit it tonight..

ok just making sure i got this right.. im trying to get fdr and the only thing i find in the manual is that gear ratio is 2:1 (38T/19T).

what is the internal ratio that i use when i am determining fdr. i have a 88 spur and 48 pinion. so 88 divide by 48 times what??

the zero s had a internal of 1.9 but i changed it to 2.0. what does the xi have??

thanks and sorry for the newb q's

yes, just trim it around the screw holes ... I just used some body scissors.

internal ratio on XI Sport is 2:1
so
88 / 48 X 2 = 3.66 FDR
