Finding tires wasnt a problem; I took the wheel hexes off and used Custom Works Foams. worked like a charm

Hey guys, I'm going to be running a buddy's B3 in offroad this season. I don't know anything about AE stuff, so I was looking for a quick answer.

He had an 81 tooth spur on the car, whats a good pinion to go with it when running a stock motor? If it matters, I'll be using a P2Kpro.

I also have extra 84, 87, 89 tooth spurs if that will help with your recomendations.

Thanks for any help.

Team Associated has a full graph on their web site of what is recommended...

This is where to start with the B3:

24 deg. ROAR stock motor 24 pinion 81 spur 8.1:1 ratio
DS Spec motor (kit motor) 23 pinion 81 spur 8.45:1 ratio
36 deg. stock motor 20 pinion 81 spur 9.72:1 ratio
14 turn modified motor 22 pinion 81 spur 8.83:1 ratio
13 turn modified motor 21 pinion 81 spur 9.25:1 ratio
12 turn modified motor 20 pinion 81 spur 9.72:1 ratio
11 turn modified motor 19 pinion 81 spur 10.23:1 ratio
10 turn modified motor 18 pinion 81 spur 10.8:1 ratio

I would try out a 24 -- you may be able to go a tooth or two bigger with that P2k, (possibly a 25 or 26). However, I don't have a B3 so I couldn't tell you for sure. I have run a T3.

It is a new buggy, just the same name.
Would you say ta04 is a re-release of ta03?

Thanks randalee, that will be enough info to get me to the track, then I'll hook up with some of the people who run it and see what the best gearing for our track is.

That Tamiya buggy looks like the old Astute, I think that is what it was called! Can't tell for sure if it is identical, but it definately looks like it! Wonder what urged Tamiya to introduce a new high end buggy?
