We race on huge mother tracks here... 190 foot straights... Some other guys are running the 2650 setup, and works pretty nice. Might need it for our track.. the 1410 and MMp may work for a smaller track i would think though.

Saturday race report. Still undefeated. Finishing order
Losi, Losi, Losi, Hyper, Losi, Slash
Truck ran awesome as usual but did have my first breakage today. I guess I am about 30 packs or so into this truck now running the eighth scale power on 3s. I have heard some say that their pin have broken in their center driveshafts. Not the case here. The pin in my center front shaft came out without breaking. I was airblowing my truck and saw the pin come flyin out. I picked it up and disassembled the shaft. What I found was that the collar that the pin rides in actually wore out. The hole became elongated. The collar is drilled out in two directions so I flipped the pin 90* and put it back together. I think this will happen again because the pin is a tad too short. I will probably end us measuring the dia. and cutting my own pins a tad longer. Hopefully Losi will look into this and make a running change. Gonna race again tomorrow.

The 2650 is going to be slower than the 1410 on 2S... Unless you are running the ERC mount you can't get a large enough pinion to match the speeds of the 1410. With an 18T we clocked the 1410 at 37.1mph on the GPS. That's plenty fast for a 190ft strait.

Yup those work, they are recommended on the first page for peeps who don't want to use a reducer sleeve. 3mm is actually smaller than 1/8th by a hair, but the pinions do work.

Going to try the 19t pinion w/ the 1415 on 2s tomm for our race. Anyone tried it and have an opinion. I know it's not that big of a deal, just curious what temps and acceleration changing from 20t to 19t?
The 20t seems to work great on outdoor tracks, running tomm. on smaller indoor clay track.

i run that combo on a fairly big (not huge) outdoor track and it works good. small indoor track will be a breeze.

You think I should go down to 18t then?

I remember 8ight saying something about rpms and the 1415....needed to run a certain pinion to work correctly. Maybe I misunderstood

its up to your personal preference and track layout. i wouldnt go buying a bunch of pinions but if you have em try it out and see what you like best.

*edit, it might have been in reference to the 30k rpm "sweet spot" in which a 3s would be better for the 1415, and 2s is good for the 1410.

Your right....I just picked up a 18 and 19. I guess I'll run each in the quals and see how they do.
After reading everyones track setups, I see that you guys switch up pinions quite often it seems. Which makes perfect sense on track size.
