Race both, theres nothing like 1/12th to hone those skills in the warm and dry!! Makes driving a touring car become so much easier after doing a season of 12th

I'm not that far but it's a few hours drive and i'm not really up to driving that far at the moment. I was in memphis about two months ago and i'd love to move there though the wife is against moving anywhere for the time being.

Need Help

Hey guys, I just bought myself a R2 and i was wondering what pinion gear i should use on the stock spur gear. I run a Reedy KR 10x2 and i will race with my Stock motor (TRINITY GM3Pro). The place where i race has around 20-30 feet straight and it has pretty tight turns.
Can you guys help me find a pinion that i can run with for top speed with my KR and does not burn the motor or waste too much battery? And a almost right pinion for the stock motor?

Thanks a lot!

I can't give you the answer..you need to find out ,what motor they are useing.then ask them what is their final gearing...
that way you can use the same set up gearing in your R2.
Kr motor are not easy to find the right gearing and most racer burnt their motor brushes once ...every track are different and no body can give you the right gearing teeth ...they can give you the ball park and the all

We dont get any 1/12 scale down here, but I do have a 1/10 scale pan car I'm working on, should be pretty sweet when I get it all finished

lol, didn't bother me...I think I had some serious brush glaze. The com was gummed up from those drops weird that tribo did that, all I added was 20 drops before I ran...lol, j/k. The com was gummed up and full of junk, maybe brushes didn't get fully seated or something. I know THAT won't happen again.
