Default Stock Roll out?

what should I try for a Final Roll out running Spec Stock high bite carpet, medium size track? I'm looking at just trying to figure out what pinions I should guess at first and work from there.

I will be running 104 Kimbrough 64pitch and TakeOff CS-27GL's and P2k stock motor.

A good rule-of-thumb starting point would be 25.4mm (or 1 inch) of rollout.

For the RDX with a 104 tooth spur, you'd want about a 27 or 28 tooth pinion.

You will need more gear than that for a P2K motor as those have quite a bit of Torque. I would try around a 30-32tooth.

The 1.0" rollout is nice for Monster stocks and such.

Is there a tool or some kind of trick for removing bearings from the aluminum rear hubs? I've got one that's bad, and those things are in there GOOD!

Cyan/magentas are great on the RDX. I did find that my car like tires that are smaller in size. But Tire size is total up to you..... How much can you stand to take off of a brand new tire? on a club level I ususally start around 56.5 and practice on them a few runs then let them wear naturally.
