21 is waaay too high...with an RPM motor like that I'd go with a 17...

The truck is great with most things in the 17-18 gear range with a stock motor...I've seen some even use a 16 in some cases...

But I'd try a 17 as a good starting point....

Let us know....

Actually if I run a heat sink it really doesn't mean that. Heat and motors don't mix. Ever run a fridged motor? ( ie- motor fresh out of the fridge ), runs with tons of power. A lot of guys run heatsinks to get great performance out of there motors.

Racing went well today. That losi guy wasn't there so it gave me a chance to practice more. I went up in oil weight all around to 40 weight on a carpet track. This really helped in the turns. The car also jumped like a dream and I didn't have to compound the crap out of the rubber tires.

Only one issue, the rear was just a tad too loose, I ran the battery pack all the way to the rear ( no spacers in the rear ) and it still let go some. Should I go to 35 weight in the rear and see if that clears it up?

With a Monster you could go down to a 16....

Thats a good idea, post more on pinion ranges for some motors commonly used.

So far at my LHS our sportsman class ( we run Street spec motors ) I run a 21T pinion and have had great results with the stock setting.

Gearing on Stock motor's for the T4.
This is just starting points.
Please NOTE every motor and motor tuner is different.I would try the suggestions I make plus 1 up or down from it to get the MOST from the motor.

Trinity Motor's or Can Style from Other Tuners:
P2K-87/18 for most tracks.If running on a big fast track.87/19
P2K2-87/17-18
GM3-87/16-17
Monster-87/16
Binary-87/15 This motor has NO torque and should ONLY be used if you happen to buy one and on BIG fast tracks only.NOT recommended and still not legal for alot of tracks.

Reedy:
Rage-87/16-17.
MVP-87/17

Orion/Peak:
Orion Chome RS or Peak Spitfire-87/18-19
Orion Core or Peak HellFire-87/18-19
These motor's I LOVE for offroad and handle heat and abuse better than ANY trinity motor.With the right brush and spring combo they are fast and last ALONG TIME.

Integy Atlas Can-
V10 2002-Their stock brush and spring combo STINKS.Change to Reedy 767's and keep the springs.It REALLY helps this motor.
87/17
V10 2003-Same here.Change the Brushes and Springs-87/17-18
V10 Turbo-Nice motor actually.Change the brushes though.lol.
87/17

19 turn motors-5-7 over the wind.So 24-26

Mod Motor's.5-8 over the wind.So if it's a 10 turn start with as low as a 15.Alot of it depends on the Mod Motor.
Stay AWAY FROM Reedy PT's in offroad.This motor was designed and is suggested for 1/12th scale.Dont make the error.

As I said guys try 1 tooth up and 1 tooth down from suggestions.

Hope this helps some guys out.
Les

Although this applies to my TC3, and it might not work for the T4...
I have come to notice that when you run the battery up front, it dosn't nessessarly make the car have more steering. Same with moving the battery to the rear, it may not make the car push more.(Porsche 911's, engine in the rear and MASSIVE oversteer...) My suguestion would be to leave one "half" spacer in the rear, rather then ALL of the spacers to the front. Making the front have less initial entering steering and keeping most of the original mid corner steering, but exiting you do not have that weight changing directions so harshly...

Just a thought...

hey guys, got back in from winter vacation.

so far gearing my 19T works great at about 19, maybe 20. I will have to see this friday. I am also going to try new brushes ( 767s ) and see how I like them in my motor.

Man, Also got to test out the mini T. if they can get some oil shocks stock in there, you got one hell of a good vehicle! ASSOCIATED, ARE YOU LISTENING!
