ok these are the combos that work together

20/24 with 52/48
21/25 with 52/48
22/26 with 52/48
23/27 with 52/48

20/26 with 54/48
21/27 with 54/48

20/24 with 54/50
21/25 with 54/50
22/26 with 54/50
23/27 with 54/50

if you dont use these combos then you will most likely strip a spur gear because the gear mesh will be incorrect

you can either run a 4 gear split or a 6 gear split. I usually run a 6 20/26 pinion grey/black and a 48/54 spur. depending on the track and tire size.The spur gears are stamped with the size. Hope this helps...

Default Split Options

I believe the 6 tooth split is good for big tracks that are prepped and
true permanent road courses, for smaller courses like the electics run,
the 4 tooth split seems better as the car doesn't jump and twitch with the shift points.

So I believe the size of the track is also a consideration

For a wide open track, I use 21-27 and 54-48
If you are on a small track, you can actually use a 2 count or a 4 count split.
That will keep you in you power band a little better.
