The 4300 is closer to a 19t. With the sintered rotor it should be pretty close. But to be honest, it is all arbitrary. I can run a co27 in my tc and turn faster laps than most guys at my club with a 4300. But if you take a good driver with the right setups, a 4300 will run about the same as a 19t.

Word? So how tall would I have to gear it in a Pro 4 to hit say, 30 mph. With that, I know I can be competitive because the track where I will race has a fairly long straight. I have a tendency to doodle in the turns, but make my bread and butter on the straights. I know I shouldnt apply 3.5 mentality to the slower winds, but this is all I know

A good person on here to hit up for gearing would be syndrOme. And try this
thread.

I also suggest getting cornering down. In 19t and stock, that is where the races are won.

a 10.5 or 4300 with sintered rotor gear between 5 to 5.5 fdr for 13.5 sintered rotor 4.2 to 4.5 fdr

You dudes have been a God send. I honestly thought I would get laughed off the threads with this, sounding quite like a newb. Taking all of this in with enough pratice and trash talk, I should be pissing people off in the mild modified class
