The reccommended Final Drive Ratio is dependent on your motor choice- NOT the car.

It will vary between motor to motor.

Cheers

I know this sounds like an asshole comment, but what are you driving a T2 for if you don't even know how to gear a motor? Hopefully you can set up the car.

Ok robbie,you said you used 21/84 on an open track with foam tyres,
Im using it on a medium track so maybe 1 tooth off for that and another 2 off because im using rubbers,so does 18 or 19 sound alright?

im with XRAYFK. also you cant say a certain fdr is all golden. different factors will cahnge that magic number. not only motor and track size but ambient temp., traction and how you drive with your throttle finger, smooth or mash it and go? you have to look at all of these factors to determine good gearing.

No one can just tell the gearing to run by looking at your track. You'll just have to guess and do some trial and error like most of us, to get your gearing right.

Didn't you just say you were going to go with the 26 tooth pinion?

I would start there. But every motor is different, even if they are the same motor... monster -vs - monster. Maybe up to a few teeth different between the two depending on the motor itself. You just have to basically guess, and then start changing pinions from there.
