What spur gear do you have in the car? Also what size and type of track? It also depends on how many turns the motor is.

It with be very fast with a 28t pinion and 72t spur gear, but you will have to monitor temps closely.... 6.4 fdr to 7.2fdr is best... Fast enough for Mod carpet Racing...

72 tooth spur (stock), don't race on a track yet, only makeshift ones, but I might race on a indoor sports hall (makeshift track again) soon. The motor is 15 turns.

I will not be carpet racing, I will only use the car on concrete, tarmac and possibly heavily varnished and polished wood. I am not too bothered about speed, aiming to get around 20-25 mph, 30 at the most. I don't really have the correct equipment for monitoring temperature, plus I don't really want to check temps every 5 minuets.

Start out with a 25t pinion and go from there.
