Default HB cyclone optimal gear ratio

I am trying to figure out what pinion gear I should buy for my car, the car hasn't been run yet as I am waiting for some electronics
the car will mostly be used for fun, and then soon get into some racing

I have 2 motors right now a novak 10.5SS and a 21.5SS, will be putting the 21.5 in first

any help will be appreciated
Mike

different people run different cars and use different weapons (esc, batt, tires etc), they all affect your gear choices, even though someone use everything exactly the same as you use, you might have different feeling about your car and might want to have one or two teeth up or down. So if you are going to race, the best way is to ask your local racers and start from what they tell you, then you will not be far away from your optimal gear ratio. Good luck

Mike,
Here is a gear ratio chart for the Cyclone. Make sure you pick the right chart depending on what pulley your using...18T or 16T.
