Default TA04 Pro gearing suggestions

How should I gear my TA04-Pro for an 11x2 mod? I have a 90T 48p spur and I am running tamiya rubber tires. The track is tight with 1 or two mediam length straights.

For P2K2 gearing, we use a 93t spur (48p) and pinions 27-29t.

Imataquito- he didn't say he was gearing 90/48 he said he was using a 90 tooth 48pitch spur.... Running a 6.38 FDR would be closer to stock or 19turn ratios.....

Bolink boy- you should be closer to 9:1 try starting around a 20-22 tooth pinion...... you may also want to get a 93+96 tooth spur.

Hello All,
Can someone, with experience running mod motors in TA04 cars, PLEASE give me a recommended pinion size for my brand new TA04 pro with 120 tooth Spur Gear so that i can run my 9 Turn Trinity Team Kinwald. I am running 15 degrees of timing on my motor but am unsure of the RPM as i don't have a Dyno.
Thanks

Worked it out!!!!
With 04 module 30tooth is recommended with 120 Spur Gear to run a 9 Turn. Ratio is 4:1 that is an optimum start point.
for 06 module which is what i ended up buying i opted for a 96 Spur and 24Tooth Pinion giving the same 4:1 Ratio.

Tested the car after installing new gears and you couldn't wipe the grin off my face
The car is just awesome!!!!!
