Ok I will order another until then

Hi guys I was out at the track today with the Team C. The car feels amazing. It's just ridiculous the speed that the car is able to carry in and out of corners... There is a video that a friend might post.

Guys

Wich options of clutch bell pinions and 2-speed gears we have on this car ?.

Today i track tested my car and with stock 42/46 speed box and 16/20 pinions my offroad engine (280 dollar rule) over revved a lot and final speed was not even near my DM1S. Then i tried 17/21 pinions and got better but still over revving and not great end speed.

Now, i can imagine 18/22 and 40/44 as maybe a final ratio solution but i dont know if i can find this on the market ... any clues ?

Thanks !!!

My billet gears are 45/40, i built a car that will be at that event with a Nova basic sport engine and with the 45/40 and 16/20 it has plenty of top end. if you are running an offroad engine i think the 21/40 should be a good match. If you always run offroad engines then the new high speed dif gears may work but they gear the car really high especially for an onroad engine. With the 40t 2nd gear the FDR is 8.6, thats pretty tall. Same 2nd gear with the 13/43 dif gear is 7.8

With the 13/43 bevel gears my bet is that you'll even have to go down on the clutchbell pinions. Something like 15/19. And even then you're taking the risk to have your engine overheat and underperfom.
The feel of the 10/43 bevel gears is awesome under the trigger and I think it increases the lifespan of transmission components. Without naming any brand I can say that I've seen many GTs needing to replace transmission parts such as bevel gears or CVD pins rather fast. It seems like a really good move from TeamC to have chosen 10/43.
Try even bigger on the clutchbell? Or try a 250$ on-road engine I have no doubt that you will be pleased.
I battled a few laps with a really fast guy driving serpent GT and he did have a bit more top than me. But I had an advantage in the infield, especially in corner exit and sweeper section too. On a 5 min battle I had a slight advantage overall.
