Anyone know what size pinion I'll need to run 27T stock?

I read somewhere about a 30T, but that seems a bit extreme. A mate of mine runs a BJ4 and he's on a 17T or 18T pinion. Is the SB that much different as regards gear ratios???

if you got a gear ratio for the motor you are going to be using, then you can work out the pinion as the car got an internal ratio of 2.75:1

Pardon me for being dumb - how do I work out the ratio of my motor? I mean it's quite a revvy 27T stock, but I just wanted a ballpark idea of which pinion to start with.

Do you mean the mm per rev of the motor?

to work out a ration, you divide the (spur/pinion)x2.75 that gives your overall ratio, so you could make a little chart up using that.

Ahhh - I'm with you now.

Cheers DA.

So what's the standard spur gear then?

I think it is a 70, but 4 comes with the kit

Your help is much appreciated DA - don't want to turn up at my first club meet with the car and be so far out on the gearing I look like a complete .

One final question then - roughly what sort of overall ratio should I be looking at? I did make up a chart when I was running my CAT3000 and I recall that I used to aim for the low 9's with stock. I take it that as my stock is pretty revvy (Core stock arm in a P2K2 can) I should be looking at mid to high 9's?

Just need to find out whatthe other spurs are that come with the kit now.

Edit - just looked at the blank setup sheet on the ERP site and it appears the other spurs are 62, 65, 67, 70 and 72.

a 70 spur on a 22 pinion will give you 9.2 to one.

No, no....I am looking for the Kose chassis set for the SB. I tried the Tokyo Hobbies site, but I didn't see a listing for Kose parts for the SB.
