ran the car yesterday out at Speedworld, it was fabulous! looking for thoughts on gearing, I know there was some talk a few pages back. I wanted to run the 48p and had a 81 from my 10L, so I bought a handful of pinions mid 20's to get me in the rollout of 53-55 W/60mm tires. Installed the 81 and mounted the motor but I was unable to get the pinion on, there is not enough space to push the motor forward. I switched back to the kit 88 and 25 pinion and off I went.



the little dirty one is what was used.

looking at what i have and seeing what is available, the RK10 may be able to use the 72 or 75 48p spur but think I have to stick with 64p. I have the 96 and a 100 that i will try on the next track day.

my next topic is ride height. we require a lot of spacers to get it down to 5-6 mm, and is it ok to install spacers under the rear aluminum pods? started the day with 58mm front and 60mm rear and had close to +-8 mm of ride height. I didn't add any yet as I'm not sure if I'm going to run tall tires (rear 62mm +) or cut them down.

What is the size of the track you are running on

55roll seems pretty tall for 2s 10.5
How did that feel

Here's a gear size calc site, it also has a free useful app
Ultrascale

64p - 20-25t pinion, 96-100t spur gears seem ideal for indoor carpet 35ish rollout

I would think 40-45 roll outdoor would be close ?

64p 96t = 48p 72t
64p 100t = 48p 75t

outdoor asphalt think around 160' back straight.

could have gone down to 50 or so, it was still pulling towards the end of the straight

Rollout for big tracks I hear are as Dave pointed out. 40-45 starting point. How did those WGT tires feel?

they felt good, I liked the front, steering was nice, as I don't like a lot of steering. the rear could have been a little softer but it worked. It did slide out coming onto the straight and a few other corners but only if you got on it real hard, nice and smooth it did good, once i got a rhythm going, only sauced one time in the morning, was able to get three runs in.

I had the kit springs (side 18) and 30k in the tubes. think I'm going up to 50k and ordering the 22 24 tweek springs, felt a little soft but the front I'm going to leave for now

I'm running 72 48p on mine and never looked back. I can easily run high 30s to upper 40s rollout.
