What's a good starting drive ratio for 19t spec motors? I'm currently using 70t spur / 24t pinion... the car seems slow on the straights, but fast on the corners... some people suggested to go around 6.0~6.5 FDR. Will this stress the motor too much that it will start running slower? Any advice is much appreciated... thanks!

Ian I ran around 7. last weekend the straight was about 10-15 shorter than TA. That should give you a starting point

Hi Dan,

I was at Tamiya last Sat. and ran 7.5, the car felt pretty good. Seems fast in the in-field but losses RPM big time on the straight away. There were some fast guys from Speedworld and SoCal Raceway practicing... a few were running the Novak brushless... I was surprised that eventhough I felt the car was way undergeared, I could keep up with the brushless motor inside (and actually managed to pass some fast guys), but after the last 90 degree corner... they're gone! I'll probably drop my gearing to around 6.8~7 this Sat and see what the effect is... do you think running a 48p as oppose to 64p makes a huge difference in performance? Thanks for the advice...

Ian

I've been running my Reedy 19T 6.0-6.2 at socal and that's considered a tight track. When it comes time to get my act together and practice with my actual race car, I'll start at 5.__ and go from there. Perhaps the 19T's like to wind out but something tells me that they aren't as free reving as the Cham2s and should have the snot geared outta them.

Also, if you're car can carry good corner speed and you don't have to accelerate from a near stop when coming out of a corner, you can get away with a taller gearing to give you that scoot down the straight away.

Fast guys? I didn't see any fast guys at Tamiya on saturday...hahah again I'm just kidding, everyone was going so fast that it seemed like a whirlpooling-blur of cars all day long.

With my C2 19t I started gearing at 6.8 on the Evo3. Seemed good all around.

Rod also likes to use his motor as a heat source after he is done racing for the day to warm his hands in the cool SoCal evenings.

Can't you just wait to see me Rod haha

Mid sixes sounds about right but fives wow you guys are gearing the snot out of them.

The brushless is about equalto the 19T, the torque hit is the big difference from most motors as it is an animal off the turn and seems a touch soft at the top.
