After reading a few things about RC gear ratios, I'm a bit confused. What does a higher ratio and lower ratio give?

Depends entirely on track configuration. If you are on and off power a lot higher (5.8 or higher), If you don't have to use the throttle much you can gear lower.

Higher gearing is for technical tracks and lower is for more flowing tracks right? And higher gearing will give more acceleration and vice versa?

Is the light weight carbon deck worth getting? I'm going to race my ride soon. Anyone have a set up sheet? I haven't yet checked Tamiya's website but if you have your own done can I get a copy?

Exactly though don't gear to high. Pay close attention to motor temperature and you should be alright.

What is the largest spur the TA-05 can run? I tried putting in an 83T spur and it didn't fit.

I'm going to try to fit my large TA04 spurs on my car today. I'm looking at the 112 and the 120. Gonna do a 64 pitch gear set up like my TA04.

Have you got a bicycle? This isn't a daft OT question

Get on your bike and try to start off in top (high ratio) gear. It's hard to get going and to accelerate, but once you have got it moving you can really fly

Start off in bottom (low ratio) gear and you can get going very easily and accelerate quickly, but only to the point where you literally cannot pedal any faster - time to change up a gear

The ratio you choose will depend on your motor and the track charateristics.

I run a 64 pitch 96-104 tooth. This is just my preferance. At our TCS race (SIR Seattle) I ran a 104/46 for a 5.09 ratio. I was solidly in the A after the first round, but broke (suspension arm) in the second round when the track got faster and ended up second in the B. The motor was fine all the way through and I still use it today. We ran 4 hour enduro's with a TB02 at 5.2 and never blew a motor, and we ran a twelve hour mini enduro with silver can, and I still have and use that motor. These motors are durable.

I got both my LE items on ebay.

I tried my 112, 120 and 128 46 pitch gears and they are too big. I tried my 90 tooth 64 pitch and it was too big also. If the hole was a bit bigger then the 112 would have fit with no problem. It rubs a bit at the bottom. How many TA05 spurs are out there?

I use other makes of spur. My Kimbrough 96 that's in now fits without any problem. I have tons of room to spare.
