As for the gear mesh,

Just peek in the little window, and rock the rear tires back and forth. You can also take the tip of your small .050" allen wrench and rock it, or the tip of you X-Acto, or a golf tee, or a toothpick, or a hair pin, or a .........

You get the point.

Hey guys here's a Q for you...

I want to make sure I have the right selection of pinions when I go down to the track tomorrow. I haven't really had a chance to test stock with the car yet.

I'm going to be running GM3s and P2Ks (depending on the track configuration). What range of pinion sizes do I need to bring? What's a good starting point?

Thanks!

I have been hearing that the stock 26 tooth pinion has been leaving the motor kind of hot. Some people have suggested 24 and 25 tooth. On a side note, What have you all been using for the Pinion Gear. I could have sworn on the old board that someone was having problems with the mesh using Trinity Pinion Gears. What inion Gears do you guys recommend and has anyone seen or heard of a conversion kit so that we can use any Spur gear matched with the Losi pully gear. I would love to get this conversion so that we can use 64 pitch gears.

Thanks

Thanks for the help guys. Sir Speedy your post had me cracking up

As for the gearing I would suggest starting in the 22-25 gear range depending on the size of the track. I usually use between a 22 and a 24 but my track is somewhat small at 72 x 42. I'm using Robinson 48 pitch pinion gears but I can't wait for somebody to come out with a 64 pitch adapter. Seems like going up or down one tooth in 48 pitch can be too much sometimes.

Yea, I agree, I have always run 64 pitch in just about every touring car I've run; I started with an HPI RS4 Pro which of course came with 64P gears, and I never looked back... had to go out today and stock up on some 48 pitch pinions specifically for the Losi. I should be all set though.

Thanks for the advice guys...

Yeah, for GM3, use either a 24 or 25. I went down to a 22 this weekend becuase I thought the motor was a little to warm and it was the wrong move.

I still haven't found out the optimal gear for a p2k though.

Just got home from the Trinity Shootout at Englishtown. The Mod A main was an INCREDIBLE race between Joel Johnson and Paul Lemieux. They just flat drove away from everyone. Their XXX-S's looked like they were defying the laws of physics. Corner speed was incredible, and acceleration that looked like the Enterprise going into warp.

Joel led for the first half of the race, then nipped a board and left just enouigh room for Lemieux to get through. Once he got past, Lemieux drove away.

WOW.

I think Joel is but the first of the veteran guards to return back to racing. This should get interesting....
