Default general gearing question

A friend of mine picked up a sprint 2 drift and I am trying to help him get it to "race specs". He already ditched the plastic tires for some rubber and I was wondering what type of gearing would be good for tight Hobbytown parking lot races. I run 19/81 in my Tc4 but wasn't sure for his. It currently has an 87 and about 25ish with 48 pitch I believe. Thanks in advance for any help...

well i drift a TB02 wit a 15x2 init......at a 5.96 ratio....probably too high....probably 6.5:1 is a good ratio.....if ur running a sport tuned just do sumthin high.....around 6....goes fast....motor lasts ages....and good control....

i dunno the internal ratio of a Sprint 2 but i have 2-3 mates that drift sprint 2's and they seem to gear down to about 7.5-8 which is pretty low i think...but then again i race with the same ratio...but yea....ratio is personal preference....i prefer fast, big drifts.....u may prefer slow tight drifts....ur mate might like all out speed combo'd up with drift...

just make sure ur mota dont overheat!

Which motor are they planning on using? As wog said, its going to be a low ratio as drift cars are used with punchy ratios to pull the cars round the corners, not outright speed.

keep the pinion size low, start off with a 19t pinion if its using 48dp gears and go from there?

hope that helps
