Default Good 64 pitch spur gear size for TC3

What is a good 64 pitch spur gear size for a TC3? I may have to go to this if I can't get my 48 pitch gearing to work. Also, which manufacturer provides the gear that will work ( if you can provide a stock number that would be excellent! )

Thanks!

There are plenty out there that will work. Precision Racing Makes Some Really Nice ones, Also Kimbroughs(sp?) are good too. Hope this helps

if you race at a parking lot track where you are consistently replacing your spur gears/pinion gears try these, they are a lot cheaper....

Yeah, I frequently use either 96 or 100 tooth spurs from Kimborough, depending on just what ratio I need(if I really need to go tall, the 96 is the best bet, & for shorter ones, I like the 100), & perhaps for serious mods, you could also use a 104.....

I have good luck with a 104 tooth spur, coupled with a 31 tooth pinion on stock rubber.

Thanks, and good luck.

A company which I believe is called RW Racing makes some excellant spur gears. I use a 98 on my TC3, previously I had a 100. Anywhere from 96-100 seems to work very well.

The new PRS (precision racing systems) spurs are nice.

I use the purple hpi gears. (4 for when i need to fit a lot of pinion in, a 46 is maxx, or a 100 for normal use. A 39 is an easy fit, and you can get up to a 40 if you shave the mount so it swings out a little further.
