Hi Tommy,
He's an ex Mugen man so that's what he might have been referring to.
But I thought the Mugen 2nd. pinions were of different diameter to the Kyosho ones - at least that used to be the situation with the old M1.0 gears.

Default More Speed

Guys;

1st Pinion/Spur: 18/48

2nd Pinion/Spur: 22/44 (tallest ratio available)

Engine: RB-V12 (stock 3 port)

Track: Revelation Raceway, 200ft straight

The Car is fine with normal diameter tires. When the grip is very high and traction rolling becomes a problem, I must use small diameter tires to keep the car on all 4 wheels in the corners. This reduces my overall roll-out enough to slow the car down by several mph.

By going to the pulley conversion, I should be able to adjust my pinions and spurs to achieve the desired ratio (I hope).

Problem is with the tallest gear 22/44, Engine revs around 40,000 and tyres at 63mm you get a top speed of 58.76mph

With the fast pulley set using the lowest gear 20/44 you get 70.28 mph. I think you can get a 19t high gear but this will give you 66.77mph

58.76 with the highest gears to 66.77 with the lowest gearing is too much of a jump

The fast pulley set should only be a 21 or 22 t pulley at the rear as this gives you a continuation of the gearing with a little overlap

Kawahara Aluminum Steering Saber

Has anyone used the Aluminum Steering Saber from Kawahara and is it worth getting. Does it improve steering much or is it equal to the plastics ones in the kit. Or is it just durable because its aluminum. What do you guys think?

Thanks,

sc

the alloy steering horn is not for durability issue but for the shake of fast change to different ackerman with only release of 2 screws.

the kyosho 1.0 pinions have a bit larger diameter over the mugen ones.

sometimes people just forget about how much power output their little engine may deliver.

Thanks Manti.
I thought there was a difference. I think my friend used to crank the engine around to achieve a reasonable mesh but I'm not sure I'd risk that with the finer 0.8M gears

Pop's,
Is this on the Reflex with 1.0M gears? If so, do Serpent pinions fit 'cos they have a 23T I believe.
We run on a large track here - the straight is more than 200ft . . . and downhill.
We usually run a 22T in the old gears and use a slightly shorter spur (can't remember which ) and it's been fine - good in fact.
This was with a X/12 Rody and it likes to rev. Our mod. V12 doesn't like to rev as much.
Maybe try some set-up changes that can handle larger tyres or maybe a shorter pipe to gain a few more revs?

. . not much help, really.

Or you could chuck that 777 paperweight in the bin.
