Default Gear Ratio for the World Edition cyclone

I have been trying to find out this information for the longest. Does anyone know what the final gear ratio is for the world edition cyclone?

Default problem

Thanks for the response to the gear ratio issue.

Here is my problem and maybe someone can help me. I live in vegas and we race on a carpet track that is 80 x 30. I run the Komodo Dragon pro and i run the 100 tooth spur gear that came with the car. the motor mount won;t allow a pinion under 35 to be attached to the car. Now i have some friends that are flying on the track and mind you, they have different cars. I have tried a 100 x 35 (spur versus pinion) and whe I hit the straight, the car reaches top speed by the end of the straight and I have to brake hard to complete the corner. in the infield it is good. I need to know what to do or what to change in my gearing so that it reaches top speed by the middle of the straight as everyone else does because that is where i fall behind.

I am running 19turn komodos and they are fast but I can't seem to get my gearing set to be fast on the straight and to hit top speed by the middle of the straight. Does anyone have any suggestions or gearing that they want to share to help me with this issue? thanks.

eather slot the motor mount so you can run a smaller pinion or try a biger spur,and go to Gear Chart and print you a chart

Hello there,Mr Goodnight

Try a 108 Spur you'll have a wider range of gear ratio's start of with a 38,39,or 40 around there should put you in the ball park.

Hope this helps
Mike
