Can you dial out some break in your radio to compensate?

Ok listen, we gear much lower because we don't want to smoke our motors and too tall of a gear will not let the motor wind out on a small/medium track. Racerb, my track as a 70 ft straight and I'm gearing my monster at a 7.3 with 58 mm foams. You should probably be at a about a 7.0 if your straight is 80+ ft, tall gearing with foams gives more corner speed. Mike F, for brush/spring combos, try the Axiom 1202 (or reedy 767) and red +, green - springs. If you need quicker spool up run Purple +, red -.

Some creep can definetly be dialed in. I have only used this motor on a fairly small indoor track (offroad truck). I think this motor is better suited to touring, or buggy use. But even in my TC3 with a one way, I might be afraid to gear it really low, even though thats where the power is.

Mike F, i'd run a 7.5-7.7 with rubber if it was the same track layout.

All you Rain City guys, can you give me a gearing recommendation on my Monster Stock? I just got one, I think I might start at 7.6 to 7.7 FDR. Should I go even lower?

Try asking Chris Perry. He was running a monster in the 1/12 I think.
