I would like to know this too. Do we need to run both pinion and conical gears or can we just run the conical?

Even if the pitch is the same the mesh would be too loose I would say you need both.

You can run either, yes they will work fine. If you just run the conical it's like half under drive.
On a small track sometimes I will use this.

you can use overdrive both front and rear at the same time? Have you ever tried overdrive with front and rear?

Using the 13/44 gear sets in the front and rear changes the cars internal ratio. This would be similar to increasing teeth on the center spur gear or going down a tooth on the motor pinion and is not underdrive or overdrive. Using it in the rear only "overdrives" the front as it will spin faster than the rear.

Hey CanyonCarver,

Are you running the Delta Winter Series? If so, what are the tires of choice there?
Thanks
Brian

Sorry Brian, I haven't been over there this year. I'm willing to bet that something like soft Impacts would get you close. I'm going to try to get over there this Sunday for some practice, I'll let you know what I end up with.

Have you tried the tekno? Some of the guys that swithed from mugen to tekno said they like the tekno a lot more. They said mugen was good but not durable.

The mugen is very durable, other than the front arms sometimes breaking and they only break if you slam into things hard, who's faults that, everything else is exceptional for wear.
Kind of funny how people go on about mugen being not reliable, my old xray xb9 had just as many dnf's from breakages, not to mention cronic drivetrain wear. yet it gets rated as of the best for durability and quality i personally think mugen is better there also.
Ive got nothing but praise on the quality of my mugens.
