Hey guys
This is off topic I know however.

Is a 1s motor legal in 2s blinky touring?

Getting smoked by a guy at my track with one.

What store carries these and do they fit with no mods?

OK I know I am going to have alot to learn over the next few months as I rejoin the onroad world once again with my TC6.1 but I am wondering if you all could point me in the right direction as a starting point for my VTA adventure as far as gearing goes. I will be running the Tekin Gen2 21.5 motor but no clue as to the gearing I will be using, I am of the understanding I want it to be in the 3.80-4.00 rollout but even this has me lost atm lol but I will get in the game in no time but this little help will be great to get me started.

Thanks
Sean

That's a good place to start. I'm running a 17.5 motor in mine with the ESC in blinky mode. The spur gear that comes with the car is pretty much for mod classes. I changed mine to a 72 tooth spur. I think the pinion is a 36 tooth. It was right at about a 4.00 gear ratio. Page 29 in the assembly manual has all of the different gear ratios. Use that to pick out your gearing. Look under the 48 pitch gearing. If I were you with a 21.5T motor, I'd probably start with a 75 tooth spur and get yourself a few pinions. 36 tooth, 38 tooth and a 40 tooth should help you fine tune it. If you only want one pinion, get a 38 tooth. Just make sure they're all 48 pitch!

Sean since those motors dont have top end you have to gear them tall. Depending on your track you gear it and temps. You will need to switch to 64 pitch to achive extra different ratios to your liking. Say you start with a 64 pitch 96 tooth count and a 47 tooth pinion that will put you at 4.0. 64spur divided by 47 pinion times 2.0 tc6 diff ratio = 4.085 you can play with the endbell timing and try lower or taller gearing. 21.5 or 25.5??

I will be running 21.5 Tekin Gen2 Redline and it is a Used TC6.1 but I was planning to get new gears since I am running such a slow motor, I have no issue going to 64 pitch and I can also get the needed gears I just didn't want to get them all lol. would staying close to a 4.00 be better then going to a 3.8?

The track Sean will be on is 60x60. The fastest cars on the track run the Novak, Viper and other lower Kv motors.

I prefer 48 as more durable, but the 64 pitch will give you more fine tunning ranges like 4.085, 4.17, 4.26 where as 48 jumps by big increments rather than small. I seems to have good luck with the xray spurs and crc pinions. Have not ruined one in a year and a dusty track.

This is what I have and are good, but im not sure if when you use 92 spur what is the biggest pinion you can run but I linked the 47 and 48. I think someone posted some about the limits of spur and pinions fitting.

Hi Dave, as long as its a legal wind stator and a legal size rotor, it would be legal. Most motors are distinguished between a 1s and 2s is based purely on rotor strength. So as long as its of legal size, its legal.

Personally, I'd stick with a 48 pitch for durability. If you're new, you're not going to be able to tell enough difference to fine tune your gear ratio. A 3.8 is going to give you more top end speed and less acceleration. A 4.0 is going to give you more torque to accelerate with but less top end speed. It all depends on your track too. If you have a lot of high speed straights, then maybe the 3.8 would be better. But if there's a lot of hairpin turns or corners where you really have to slow down, then the 4.0 might be better for accelerating out of them. The races aren't usually won on the straight aways anyways. For most situations, I'd say that a 4.00 gear ratio would be a great place to start. Pinions are cheap and easily changed on this car. I'm totally speculating here, but I'm thinking that a 4.00 gear ratio will let your motor run a bit cooler than a 3.80 would.

Sounds good I will give that a try, thanks for the input.
