Does anyone have some gearing advice for an 8.5 in a b4 on a tight track. (OC/RC raceway) track is 60' x 90'. Thanks

Hi all,

Tire question: I'm looking for a rear truck tire that has similar traction characteristics to M3 Step Pins but wears better. I race on a track that can get lots of small dirt chunks on it as well as getting really rough and choppy. When the track is swept off, it's hard and has plenty of traction....super soft Switches work really well then. Any ideas? Bow Ties don't have the side bite that I'm after and the Step Pins wear to fast for my liking. I was thinking of Panther Komodo's in either soft or super soft but haven't tried them yet. Any other options I should consider? Thanks in advance!

you are describing a track that i test and practice at. I just tried a set of the kit tires (M3 Holeshots) and they were HOOKED UP. Remember, when you race on a track that has a hard surface, you need a softer tire. Unfortunately, the softer tire will wear out faster. If you want good traction, then go with softer tires. If you want good tire wire but want to sacrifice traction, go with a harder compound pin type tire.

we're running on a simular surface and the J concepts goosebumps are working very well.

AssocRacer: Holeshots are a no go, 2 runs and they're missing pins from the sand and rocks. They work well when the track is mostly swept but not well enough to justify a new sets every other battery pack. I've been racing a while and am familiar with the hard surface/tire compound relationship. What I'm after most is tire tread options that yield similar traction to Step Pins (which Holeshots don't when the track is really loose and lumpy/choppy ) but with better wear.

Kings Kid: I'll look into the Goosebumps, how are the compounds rated? I know there's blue, green and yellow but I forget which is soft etc...?

Thanks guys!

Panther studs in soft compound, foams that come with tires. Love those tires, long lasting and hook up on many surfaces.

Losi T-Bones may work well for you.

Any pinion starting suggestions for a T4? Running small tight track, with a 19 single. Currently have a 21 pinion with a 87 spur, every thing else is box stock factory team set up.

You can prob. go with a 18 or 19 tooth, that should be fine.

I run a 17T with my Komodo Dragon 19T.

I can probably go up to an 18, but our straight is small, so 17 gives me more torque out of the turns.
