Default Mod Touring gear pitch

Good afternoon,

Planning to try out Mod Touring. My local track is a small carpet facility and I am running an Xray T4.

What gear pitch is typically used for mod?

What is a good tooth spur to start with and what pinion range would I need.

Thank you

Your FDR depends on the motor wind you plan on running. As far as gear pitch, normally for anything carpet I would say 64p is the way to go, but if your track has big bumps or anything like that then I would say 48p.

What pinion depends on what motor, but usually you are about 112-116 tooth spur gear, and between 26-29 pinion. Thats most useable.
Pitch i would say 64p is what you always want to use for touring. No one uses 48p really.

64P is the way to go and I set my 17.5 ans 21.5 sedans to an FDR of 3.8 and adjust from there.

Use 48p gears if you don't want to strip gears....

The kit 84t spur is a pretty good bet for 48p.
