Arrow Tamiya TT-01 Gear pinions


I am a bit of a noob when it comes to the gears and differential of my car

i was wondering what difference does the different size cogs make

and if i was 2 upgrade what size would be best for speed

i currently run a super stock RZ 23t motor and am using the standard speed control but am probably going to be upgrading to a 300a soon,
also i have alot of aluminium parts and race bearings

so what size gears would be best for me and how easy are they to fit

Gearing is really dependent on where your driving. I'm currently running 22P/61S (7.21:1) with a 27T stock motor. I race on a open long fast track and I want to put on a 25P/55S (5.7:1).
The problem with having taller gearing is that you lose off the line speed, but you gain top end speed.
But that being said you'll able to get away with taller gearing then I what I can and still maintain decent overall performance.
If your racing it, ask others what gear ratio to go for. If you just bashing it won't matter as much.
