rollout = (tire size* 3.14159*(pinion/spur) / cars gear ratio)

Its best to go find a rollout chart for your car and use that.

Spc- You want to lower your rollout if your motor is getting to hot. Go to a .95 from a 1.0. If you have any questions, come see me tomorrow

www.RCpimp.com also has gear and rollout charts based upon your vehicle.

Print them out for reference at the track.
