You can use them on your cap.

Gearing it at 4.2 will give you your top end, gearing it for a lower FDR than 4.2 is possible, but not allowable per the rules. Gearing it at 4.8 will give it better infield speed. From past experience, most people don't get passed on a long straight, they get blown by in the infield. Temp is real important to the 21.5s they get real slow when they overheat.

But, back to the RS...
I'll have to disagree with you on this one.....In the world of real cars a higher ratio is always the lower number or more top end. A lower ratio is the higher number or more low end torque.

RC cars are just scaled down cars of the real thing hence....we should follow the same terminology.....

Lower gear ratio.....more low end power
Higher gear ratio.....more high end power

I'm glad to see that you can look up the ratio's on the Vette. You're talking about higher gear numbers (speed) and I'm talking about higher gear ratio's. They are opposite.

It's not worth arguing to be honest.

Us REAL Mechanics that deal with this all day long will Strongly disagree with what you just sait.

Lower gear ratio = less tork more top end speed = overdrive or overgearing
Higher gear ratio = more tork less speed = underdrive or undergearing

It is the same in all physics.
If you think I am wrong then you better go back to school.
BTW: I rebuild Transmissions in real cars
You are ABSOLUTELY wrong, but I'm done with this......by the way we in the educated world spell "tork" like this TORQUE.......

I'm out on this one....... Ignorance must be bliss......

How about this: Ever heard "Gear Down" Lower gear = more torque
"Gear Up" Higher gear = more speed

If you put a higher gear ratio in your car you will go faster on top speed........closer to 1:1 the farther from 1:1 the more torque you will have.

A 2.73:1 ratio is more top end
A 4.11:1 ratio is more torque or bottom end

I won't respond to more of this nonsense.....Look it up!

Something els. I get several questions about the Turbo.
Most of them if they go faster on the straight with the Turbo than the other speedo's.
The answer is yes as you want to go faster on the straight it is possible.
But this will not make your car faster than other speedo's.
You will lose to much power in the infield and you notes that the Turbo will kick in quite late. So your advantage is very small and only on the straight.
Gear your car a lot lighter. You will go faster in the infield and the Turbo kicks in a lot smoother on the straight. Also you will feel the Turbo on the straight as one acceleration.
When your car comes on the straight, it will keep accelerating till the end and it is as fast as the other speedo's.
The infield is than for the Tekin. You will see that you are a lot faster in the infield.
Also you can use a lower Boost. Your motor will stay cooler.

I'm already waiting for the V202 software. I like the new software features.
Each time Tekin comes with something new.
My speedo becomes faster and faster and each time I discover new tings with setups.
i haven't seen a response to post yet (i may have missed it) and if i understand what is trying to said i agree.

I've keep reading about dropping 4 teeth, or 6 teeth or whatever, it seems to me that a brushless motor, has a gear ratio that it runs best at. different brands motors have a different gear ratio IMO. at home i ran a 5.2 all the time, when i went to jonesboro i discovered that by going to a 4.7 the motor ran well but got hot, but i needed more if i was going to even think about running with Mr. Tag, so i tried a different size spur and went to a 4.23 and the motor actually ran cooler. when i came home i ran the same ratio and ran away with the races. I've used this ratio at jonesboro, med size outdoor track and hot has hell temps, I used the same ratio at SIR air conditioned indoor asphalt small track and at Fantasy World Racing track, google it for videos that show the size of track. last week i got to try version 199 after using version 198 the week before, I geared down and felt i lost all the infield rip the car had while only maintaining the same straight away speed. i geared back up, infield rip came back and straight away speed went up. what am i doing wrong or different then everyone else. or is it one of those wierd things that happens some times. thanks and looking forward to 200.

All the gear ratio crap is making me want to go buy a LRP.

Some times the motor will run hot if it's revving out all the time. In that case running a bigger pinion can actually make the motor run cooler. The sweet spot gets smaller as you add timing.

Just goes to show that you need to practice with a few different ratio's and find the best gear for what you're running.

Both right, each looking from different ends. Terminology is confusing.
