Default Spur Gear

Ok, maybe this is a lame question but here it goes. Does X-Ray offer a spur gear with a 42 pitch so that I can use my pinions from my TC4?

Thanks

I'm sure you meant 48 pitch, and the answer is yes. The original T2 came with 48p, here is a link to all of the XRay spur gears... XRay Spur Gears

I'm in the market of getting another touring car so I can run stock and 19t. I currently run a 007' US version. I got it because we had a carpet track here in Utah. I've been running it locally here on asphalt with good results. My question is this, should I buy the Euro version or should I just get another US version? I was leaning towards the US version because I can run it while on business in Tucson or at Stockton (carpet tracks). What's your thoughts?

B18, try the search function. It worked for me when I had the same question a week ago.

Go to this link, http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/pro...07%20US%20Foam the gearchart is at the bottom under Quick Reference Table. If you bought the kit new it should have been included with the books, if you didn't get it contact RCAmerica, and I am sure with some proof of perchase they can send one to you

i assume you are unaware that brushless requires a completely different gearing setup, thats why I asked.

I ran a 13.5 at my local club on carpet. The track size was about 17mtr x 7mtrs. The track was just over 1.5mtrs wide with nothing but 90 and 180 degree corners. I used to run a monster around 9:1 and a ROAR around 9.5:1. I would run the 13.5 at 7:1

I would suggest you start by adding 2 or 3 teeth (48dp) to your brushed stock pinion and keeping adding one tooth until you find that sweet spot.

Just don't be afraid to keep on adding teeth, there is so much torque in the 13.5 you'll get tyre squeal coming out of every corner. I used to struggle to complete the 5 minute runs because I was so busy laughing at how much grunt it had compared to the brushed motors

And some people wonder why brushed and brushless stock and 19t are not racing against each other at bigger events.

17x7mtr wow that's a small track... the smallest I ran on was 50'x28'

here's a little more reasonable track size 48x70 10 second stock track running a 28mm (7.1fd with 2.5" 63.5mm rubber tyres) roll out on monsters 29.5 (6.7fd) on co27 and 40mm (4.9fd) on 13.5 and I might be going up. there is a difference in motors and the powerband they run. the only thing you can check is how hot they get. go to 150f and back off one tooth. I didn't check it last time but need to this weekend

Plenty of gearing info in this thread.

New Novak Stock Brushless

Lately I shoot for about 40-41 mm roll out. That's admittedly high though. Try about 38-39 mm roll out and go from there.
