The three ran the GT3-S. Engines seemed to work very well on the track.

I dont know if you really have tried it, for me it does help on bite tracks, especially when the car starts to traction roll. For us in the states it is helpful. The benifit is good if you have one in your box..

TIA
a lot of the guys are using ACORN spring in there cars in the USA and the price is right.

Hi guys, I need some advices.
What pinion is good for 1st gear, if I use 24T for 2nd, when running stock 59/54 spurs.
Is 18T ok ? without causing any damage. or should I use 18/23 ?
Thank you

most setups use 17/23 or 16/22,21. I'm not sure where you run but I haven't ever needed 18/24.

For what I have tested a good starting point is a 17/23 with a 60/54 for most of the tracks, I havent really tried the 18/24 combination but I would think it would be too long,

I run 18/58 and 22/54 goes well, very smooth and good top speed.
All though I may drop to 17/58 for more punch off the line.

Thank you everyone for your advices.
It's a long straight 1/8 track.
I'll try 17/23 and see if the top is good
