modified motor for 1/12 pan car?

i just got my yokomo worlds edition 1/12 pan car. what kind of modified motor should i run? and what spur and pinion combo? the LHS track is a indoor carpet , and its tight. i currently have a 19 turn trinity, but i would like to run a modified motor too, any recommendations?

Any idea what the others are using? How long is the longest pull on the track?

i run the same car and i use the reedy Ti motors i like my 10X2 and 9X2. i ran a 94 spur, if the track is tight, try a 20 or 21 pinion

i have a reedy ti mod 10x2 and a 12x3 that i use on my touring car. i was thinking about using the 12x3 as a initial test. i have a extra 75t spur and a 19 t pinion (48pitch), the yokomo spur is a 100 t , do you know what pitch it is? most guys run trinity mod's with a 10x1 or 12x2. but i have never used any of the trinity mod motors. by the way what servo are you running on your yoko world car?

the 100t is 64 pitch. 64 pitch is what you really want to use for 12th scale. your 10 turn should be fine, but try your 12 as well. I race for axiom motors and use their reedy ti base cans. i dont care for trinity so i do not use their products. servo, i use a jr 3550

64 pitch will give you less resistance but will wear out to quick off road.

Default Selection

A 48 pitch spur gear has less teeth for the same diamater of a 64 pitch gear. You get more gear ratios, or a bigger selection.

96 teeth in a 2" 48 pitch gear. 128 in a 64 pitch 2" gear.

For example: 48 pitch 75 spur, 25 pinion = 3 to 1 ratio

64 pitch 99 spur, 33 pinion = 3 to 1.

Now change one tooth and see the difference:

75 tooth 48 pitch, 24 Pinoin = 3.125 to 1

99 tooth 64 pitch, 32 pinion = 3.09 to 1

More selection of ratios as your tires wear, and a bonus of quieter gears. Change your spur by one or two teeth and things get even closer.

64 pitch gears are also more efficient

when calculating your overall gear ratio don't forget to add in the final drive.
