it depends on ur track ur gonna run it. I ran a 19 or 20 pinion on mine. 20 seemed to work real good. If ur undergeared the car will top out about half way down the track, and if ur overgeared it top out at the end of the straight away. U want a gear that is plenty to get u done the straight. Thats something ull need to experiment with. Hope my 2 cents helps.

A smaller pinion will spool the motor faster, good for small track with tight turns, and a larger pinion will spool later in the powerband of the motor good for a track with many straights etc.

BuggyKing has got it. For a 6.5in a B44 buy a 19 & a 20 and you should have it covered.

playboy - For a Novak 6.5R with a 4wheel drive buggy you should have a final drive ratio of a 10. That should be a good starting point. I haven't run a B44 so I can't give you the exact gearing. Sorry. I hope this helps you out.

Later.

The B44 manual actually has recommended gearing. For the 6.5 a 19/84 and the 5.5 18/84. I have the 6.5 and using the 19/84, works VERY well in my local track. blindingly fast....
