Need knowledge on Clutches and Diffrent tooth Gears? How they effect performance?
Just Ordered a Nitro Star T15 engine from Towerhobbies for my 1/10 scale, 4wd Shaft driven, Nitro buggy. Should be hear on Monday, hopefully sooner!! Anyway, I have this Drag/Track race coming up soon, Friend keeps talking trash on my car cuz he has a Tmaxx truck not even broken in yet, and a Savage X which is Much more...Beat'in Anyway, It's easy to say that He Has way more Power using the 3.3 in the Tmaxx and a Big block in the Savage. Me only having a .15 engine that cranks out 1.49 HP @29,000rpm, I have to get him in the gearing. I Have a 2 shoe clutch assembly on my Buggy now, with a factory tooth bell Crank.
Could i Go and Buy a Higher toothed Bell Crank, 3 or 4 shoe Clutch assembly, to boost my performance? I was thinking of going with a 14-18 tooth range.
What would this do for me?
I don't know much about Clutches or Gear tooth numbers, Can somone Send me some Pointers? So 2 weeks from now, i can go smoke my friends attitude out the window!!
