Default what clutch bell should i use on my 8ight-t?

i have a 13t and a 14t......my center spur gear is a 48...i have 2 motors....1 is a nova 3port with 2.0hp and 32,000rpm range....2nd is a mach.26 with 2.75 hp and 30,000rpm range....i want to have both set up so i can just quik change motors if needed.....the TRACKS i run at have a pretty long straight,but the rest of the track is quick turns and lots of jumps!....so i am wondering what clutch bell to run on both motors?

13 on the nova and 14-15 on the 427.

Personally I like 13/50 in my losi truggy. When I ran the 1.0 I ran 13/48. Go up a tooth if you just plain have too much bottom but unless the track is huge it's not necessary. Stick with the 13 tooth.

Back in the 1.0 days I ran 13/49 gearing. I'm with Frank though, I prefer 13/50 gearing on the truggy. If you can get a 50T spur, I would go 13/50 on the nova and 14/50 on the 427. The 427 has a ton of bottom end and not a lot of top end, so I think it warrants the larger bell. You may even need a 15t bell if you are running on a large track, especially with a 50t spur.

Someone actually agrees with me. It brings a tear to my eye.

I really like the 13/48 in the 2.0 T. On tracks with long straights it allows the engine to sit at a much better RPM, rather than stressing it out. It still has more than enough bottom end while being much smoother.

edit...

I didn't see this was for the 1.0. I would still say 13/48 though.
