Some people think since they have a mod motor they can gear them really high, but they're wrong. If you're going to do some street bashing and want some top speed I would gear it so your final outdrive ratio is 6 or higher, but if you're racing on a tight track I would go with 7.5 or higher.

14T around 7.5 OGR
13T around 7.8 OGR

I'd say don't go lower then 7 but it really depends on how often you want to cut the comm.

I found the following tip at Trinity's site:


9) What gearing should I start with on my Sedan?
(Drop one tooth on the pinion for every turn you drop on the mod motors)
Losi XXXS 48 pitch (Stock - 25/90) (10T Mod - 19/90)
Assoc. TC3 48 pitch (Stock - 26/72) (10T Mod - 21/72)
Schumacher Mission 48p (20t pulley) (Stock - 23/90) (10T Mod - 19/90)
Yokomo MR4 48pitch (Stock - 26/81) (10T Mod - 20/81)
Hudy X-Ray 48 pitch (Stock - 27/93) (10T Mod - 22/93)
