Default R/C Gear program

Hey guys,
I've made this program and posted it on most of the forums I go on all the time but remembered most everyone here races so I though it would be great for you all.

It basically does math for you to find ratios, rollout, est top speed. Then it has some features for brushless and li-po batteries.

You can download it here. http://sourceforge.net/projects/rc-gear

Tell me what you think. Also I'm guess most of you have ideas for stuff to be added/changed. All help is greatly appreciated.

Nice lil proggie u have...

The opnly thing I dont care for is the rollout & motor rom's. Maybe that can be options to be turned on as needed by the user.

Awesome tool Seth, I made sure that I put it in my favorites because I happen to use these calculations all of the time.

Rap66 - That sounds good. I'll make that a feature in my next update. But for now if you put a 0 in the tire diameter and motor rpm box it will calculate the final ratio without doing the others.
