Default Pinion set. Which one

Hi guys,

I am looking for a basic 48 pitch pinion set. Any advise? It doesn't have to be the most epensive, but I don't want a junk either.

Thanks a lot.

Can't go wrong with Robinson Racing, most shops carry them.

The PRS gears are really nice as well...not sure where they are sold online but the price is good and the gears rock.

TiRacing (imported by schumacher i believe) also makes some nice gears - titanium pinions, but they are a bit pricey. the way i look at it though, is that pinion gears are a durable item that you'll have for year(s) most likely. the difference between 'middle of the road' and 'best' isn't that great, so spend the couple extra bucks now, and enjoy long-term.

as far as 48p: tiracings, prs and robinson (absolute series) are all solid products.

Someone had told me that pinion sets are for testing only, and not for actual racing. Is that right?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "for testing only",
you try out different ones, find the one that works best and use it for when you race...
unless you run the same motor and track layout forever.... then your going to need different pinion gears...
so why not buy a whole set.
because if your luck is like mine... your going to need the one you dont have..

Thanks guys to all of you. That's the info I was looking for.

I think what donoman meant is that robinson racing is selling a set of 6 pinions and they suggest to use them for testing only to figure out which are the pinions you will use at your track and motor configuration. They are much cheaper because the material is not top notch. This is actually not a bad idea before you spent serious coin for pinions you will never use. So partially he was right saying that sets are for testing only.
