Default 64P or 48P Pinion and Spur Gears

I was recently told that I should swap out my 48P with a 64P because it is better... What exactly makes it better? I'm new to the racing sceen...

I don't think it's any better...

The benefit is that you get slightly finer gear ratio adjustment. Some might say it is more efficient.

But to get those benefits you have to live with gears that are much harder to mesh and more fragile.

I use 48dp and have never felt the need for a finer adjustment. This is in touring car by the way.

I would not suggest using 64 pitch if you're bashing, or racing on unprepared surfaces, for the reasons above.

Good day!

As far as peformance you would not notice any differance as long as the clearance is set correctly. I use 48 pitch for my 10th scale outdoor cars and 64 pitch for my 12th scale indoor car. The 12th scale needs the finer adjustment du to the smaller wheel size.

Just use what you have for now and save your money for track fees. Spend some time with the car and then decide if you need to chainge it.

Use whatever pitch other people are using. So in case you strip a spur gear, or need a pinion, someone is bound to have what you need.
