Default Gearing / Rollout?

Could anybody tell me what the correct gearing/rollout would be for a sedan with 27Turn motor with Foam tires on Carpet track? Were all Rubber tires here in NORCAL, want to give foam a try....Thanks....

Which 27 turn motor?

For a CO27, try 1.08 (inches). For a Monster Stock, try 1.00. For an Orion Core, try 1.13. Those were popular rollouts at the Halloween Classic and the Cleveland Indoor Champs.

Download the XRAY Setup book here: (it is a PDF file zipped up) http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/sho...p?file_id=2525

Check out the info starting at page 40. All your questions about rollout will be answered. Of course, substitute your actual internal drive ratio for the XRAY 1.7 ratio (34 and 20 tooth pulleys).

HTH!
