Anyone try out the money motor in their 415? I just got a checkpoint 19t and not sure what to gear it, new to tamiya. Someone please give me a starting point. Will be on large size outdoor asphalt track with a 102 spur. Thanks!

I would start at 6.3 and go from there. My motor temp is around 140 F. So, this isn't hard on the motor. You can gear it more but I tend to be a little conservative, at least until I know what the motor really needs for my race track. I believe that is a 35 pinion with a 102 spur!

Start with a 0.7mm spacer then 1mm then 1.5mm and see what works.

thank you so much Martin...i'll try it..

Xtrem, it is the same as droop. Instead of a droop gauge, they will measure the height of the axle from the ground using a calipeir (i.e. 25mm). If you go to Tamiya USA website David Jun has an article on how to set droop using this method.

Did some testing with the Checkpoint motor and was up to 7.3 FDR, probably could have gone one more tooth but ran out of time. It pulling pretty good out of the corners. I'll do more testing next weekend!
