For 13.5 with a lipo, running no asphalt what would be a good pinion/spur to start with?


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61wL2Eq3qUk the layout is diferent now but you can atleast get an idea of how big the track is.

Thanks

rubber tire 13.5 start at 4.5 and watch motor temps 150 to 160 is the sweet spot for most motors

xtreme.......i'm not sure a spool is the way to go on a tight technical track.....unless braking is needed.
thanx josh. no need to brake at my track. so i will just try the new setup and keep the oneway as it works real good now. thanx again

are u running foam or rubber
all u have to do to figure out final drive ratio is divide pinion into spur then multiply by internal drive ex 64 p 100 spur \40 pinion= 2.5 x 2.0 internal drive= 5.0
