Default Quietest 64 pitch spur/pinion combo?

I am about to convert to 64 pitch gear and I want to know which brands are the smoothest and quietest. Thanks for your input.

I have had very good luck with Kimbrough gears. I also have some Titanium Racing pinions, but I don't think they are quite as true as the Kimbroughs.

RW Racing spurs also work very well, I believe I have one on my car right now.

RW racing spurs are awesome...they are extremely thin, and run noticeably straighter than other spurs i have run in the past

they really calmed down the noise in my tc3, and l4o

They make some high quality lightened and super smooth Spurs and pinions.

You won't be dissapointed.

i think i have run those before too...they were nice, i just like the fact that the rw gears are the same size all the way through, keeping it as light as possible

I have had a problem with the set screws pulling out the threads on the PRS pinions, I have never had that problem with Robinson pinions. I also use Kimbrough spurs,they are straight, hard, and true and he is a great guy and a great supporter of our hobby for many years now.

kimbrough gears are nice, and very popular among most racers, but personally, i would prefer a machined gear over a molded gear, like the kimbrough gears...not sayin they are bad because they are molded, its just one thing i pay stupid attention to...

PRS is definetly one of the best if not the best. I love the way you can run your mesh loose for stock. Super quiet and extremely durable.

The guys are also super nice and extremely helpfull.

Hmm, I had the Kimborough gears in the past und yes they are very durable. But as they are molded they don´run very true and adjusting the gear mesh isn´t that easy.
I´m running Xenon gears now and like them a lot. The gears used on the HPI Pro4 or Yokomo SD also are Xenons.
Other than that I know enough people using the machined RW´s and the Robinson Racing Ultra spur (also machined) I used with my TC3 was very good.

For pinions I like the RW´s and Trinity Kinwald´s the most.
