Whats the biggest range. I found a really good deal on some new 48 pitch pinions.

Motor CO 27 for stock and 12X2 Mod
Batt. 4200
Brushless 13.5 to 7.5
Track ??? It's a State Series so there will be 8 different tracks.

there are pack of odd and even. I would get anything from 14-24. This will cover any offroad car and any motor choice.

I'd snag pinions ranging from 17 to 24 for the motors you listed.

CO27 tends to be happy between 19 and 21.
12x2 (I run epic shock) seems to be happy at 20 to 22.
Brushless... Again, depends on the track. One racer put a 24 into his 10.5 once and found his sweet spot for the track. 2 weeks later on a redesigned track the pinion was completely wrong, because it went from a long 100' straight to a 40' straight. So you really have to take into consideration the track you're running on.

If you go to a tight layout, with well packed dirt, a 17 will give you the torque to jump out of the corners (but you'll be slow on any straight longer then 40 feet). Meanwhile, a loose track, you may want to put in a higher pinion to reduce wheelspin, less torque but get higher speed on the straight. Really it just takes practice and tuning.

The truck should be 7 over the wind
The buggy should be 9 over the wind.
That's what Joe Pillers says.

I can't see anything out of the 19-24 range. These 6 should cover you in all circumstances.

dunno cav said 8 over for the truck, and 9 over for the buggy.....but i liked 81/23 on the buggy with a 13 turn....i have ran the 22 pinion, but it didn't seem like it added any more punch, and i could see a top speed difference....and the 23 on the buggy only added an extra 4-deg over the 22 pinon.

its all a matter of the driver tho....and the track too.

Hello,

I am new to electric racing and am receiving a brushless motor combo in a trade and wondered how it would do in a B4 in the mod class.

Lrp Sphere competition speed control

Neo1 4 star brushless motor

Neo1 1 start brushless motor

I am not new to the hobby I come to electric with quite a bit of 1/8th scale background. If either of these motors will work well in the B4 running mod and lipo (supported at my track) or NImH what would be the right pinion to go with? I know this is dependent on the track and batteries but how about a ballpark. Thanks in advance.

went racing today, i can say that 20/87 with a 12 turn in the truck runs great. 22/81 with a 13 turn in the buggy is what i liked best on the same track.

The 1star is a 8.5 = to a 13 brushed good for mod racing I would try 17 on a small track & 20 for large.
Your 4star is a 5.5 = to a 7 turn try 14-18 this one has alot of power good for bashin.
I have a Neo1 3star(6.5) with a 15 tooth in my T4.

Default Gearing question

I know the answer is probably buried in this thread somewhere but I just dont have thetime to read it all...

Just bought a new T4 and all I have for a motor and esc is the Mamba max 7700. I run a 2 cell 3200 lipo. I run on a small indoor track and a medium outdoor track. What do you experienced guys recommend for a pinion with the stock spur?
Thanks for the help.
