I gear my Monster at a 72/21. I'm running on a tight indoor carpet track. And the motor still gets pretty warm.

hey Proud, are you running ceramic bearings? Do you notice a big difference? Also, why 96T and not 100T spur?

Hey mike f,

I was talking to one of the hotshots over here in the bay area and he said ceramics make a huge difference. I can't afford them personally,but his car will freewill for days!! Incidentally, he does haul much ass.

I'm beiginning to get a little worried . I gear my monster at 7.0-- 70/25. On some relatively small tracks. It doesn't get any warmer than my MVP or p2k2. I've a pretty big fan shoe goo'd in though. I've taken a lot of time to get the blackening off of the brushes,so the motor has a lot of bottom end.--Al

cool, thanks. I've seen some from different mfg's so the prices are different depending on which brand you get.

From my experiece big al, that monster likes to be at the 7.5 - 8.00 range

I gear my monster at 72/21 (8.57) on a tight indoor track and it doesn't get any warmer than my p2k geared at 72/25 (7.2). In my opinion just because it's a high RPM stock motor doesn't mean that it should get hotter if it's geared correctly. If your monster is performing good and doesn't get too hot, than you should be happy, I would be.
I would be careful saying the monster "likes to be geared 7.5 - 8.0 range". If your going to say something like that, I would atleast say what style of track you're running on (tight indoor, or open outdoor, or something like that so someone could get an idea of the track you're running on). If a person who was new to racing running at my track read that, they might just gear their monster that tall and go and smoke it on it's first run. If I were to run my monster that tall there it would smoke for sure. I run my 19t chameleon motor at a 7.82 . Thats just my .02

Mike F, 96 because that is all I could find in a robinson racing narrow spur at our local hobby shops, pretty sad huh I will be ordering some RW 100's before too long. One thing I found out about a tc3 and spurs is that the smaller the spur the smaller pinion you'll have to run and that's a good thing to get the motor closer to the center although you will lose gearing ratios, what a trade-off Yes I am running ceramic bearings and yes I do believe my car has been a few tenths faster with a noticable amount of more punch out of a turn.

Good point. They give you an idea where to start off the gearing when you buy the motor and I think it's in the 7.5 range but your right about the track size. Our track is usually set up large with a long str8. Your running at 8.57, those are mod numbers. Amazing.

I like to gear my car as high as possible without my motor getting to hot. So if your competetive with how your gearing it, and your not smoking your motor. Than I would leave it. But you could always try lower.
