Default quick 1/10 4wd setup question

hi,

i have a few questions. i have a b44 with a mamba max 5700 setup.

1) what pinion should i go with?
2) should i use sway bars or not?
3) what's the best all around tires?

i tried the b44 forum, but no answers on most of my questions. i would like to go to the LHS soon to see if i can buy today.

Hello
What pinion you use depends on what spur gear your running. A gearchart goes for any motor as long as you know your spur and pinion. www.gearchart.com Just go there and find your car. It should say your Internal Resistance, aka Transmission Ratio. Now the key to gearing is the lower the number Is a higher gear. The Higher number the the more torque or bottom end. You want somewhere in the middle, where your motor temp isnt too hot and feels nice and fast. As for sway bars, you use them depended on how the cars handling. A sway bar's main use is to minimize the side to side movement, therefore increasing overall traction depepnded upon where you put them.Im not an offroad guy so Id suggest asking the local guys or If you have no local guys and just have fun runnning is around alone, EXPERIMENT.
good luck

Is this for racing?

The best option is to always talk to the guys at your local track. Tire choice especially varies from track to track, so just ask the ones who know best

i will be running at a 1/8th scale track. hardly any 1/10th scales there. it will be hard to find someone else with a b44. im just looking for a general setup, an all around setup.
