Default 0.8 Module gears

I don't understand how if you have say 5 tooth split with pinion you could have 6 or 7 tooth split with spurs and gears still mesh. I thought rule of thumb if pinions 5 tooth then spurs 5 tooth split???

I know that the Mugen gears are all the same size in diameter. So a 16 tooth pinion is the same inside and outside diameter as a 19t pinion. This same rule applies to the spur gears. This way any gear split that you want to run will work without a gear mesh problem. Hope this helps.

what they do is slightly change the pitch just enough to keep the spurs the same size. but in doing this i find certain spurs last longer than others. the pitch change is so the size of the spur stays the same as doc noted, but with a tooth count difference. i can show you next time your at the track Mark. biggest diff is my ED pinions. my 16t compared to my 15t, extremely noticable.
