Default Help with Pan car gearing

I have two cars RC10 L3 and a Bolink with same spur gear, from the Stock RC10 L3.

The Bolink is a 13.5 Novak w/XBR ESC . The L3 has 5.5 Novak w/GTB ESC.

Can anyone recommend the optimum tooth pinion gear for these? I was trying to Find Novaks chart, but no luck.

Thanks.

Here's a link to a chart. Pan car gear ratios are determined by the tire diameter. One thing I can tell you is that a 5.5 is crazy overkill for any pan car on any surface.

Try a roll out of about 70mm for the 13.5 and 30mm for the 5.5 for a starting point. You'll probably be able to go up.

BTW, 4.5 motors in 1/12th mod are quite common. Hard to control for the average racer, but common
