I see there are several different versions of the t2- 07,08,09 etc.
Whats the difference ? is the 7 as good as the 9 or is the 9 way better than the 7
Did they change the geo radically for the t3?is the 7 as fast as the t3/whew!

Anyone using Associated Black Grease for the CVDs rather than Hudy Grease?

I just use a bit of light oil. After a few runs, I spray them and re-oil.

Default Pinion 6.5T

Hi,

Im new to electric cars, I came from nitro.
Recently I bought a t3 here in the forum, and I need to buy pinions for it.

It is a EU version, so it has a 84T spur 48 pitch.
I will be running a 5200Kv motor with 7.4 Lipos.
My track has a straight of 40m

Anybody can tell me a pinion to start with???

I have no idea. I need a reference to start trying different meassures.


Thanks,

Ale

I'm assuming the car is already balanced. There is a ton you can do to fix this on the T3. I would start by posting your set up with the track conditions. That way I can help you in the right direction

Hi Skiddins,

I have this combo:

hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=10330&Product_Name=Brush less_Car_Power_System_5200Kv/100A

I was thinking in buying Yhea Racing pinions sets.
Like this:
