I'm not sure, but I think the stock 1st pinion is 21t? I run at a large track with 21/46, 25/50.

When you change your gearing, just try to keep the spurs and pinions proportionate to eachother (no big splits)...
they should equal example 21/46 = 67

Well guys i'm almost done putting my car back together with all my new hop ups on it. Man that steering is so smooth again!! It will probably loosen up within the first few tanks though. Did anyone else have a problem with the the tank hitting the chassis on the bottom and not allowing it to go all the way onto the posts that hold the tank. I got it to fit but man its tight.

Also i took out the rear sway bars. I think this will give me a little better traction in the back.

Damn, didn't know how much of a difference a plug could make. Took me about a whole to minutes for me to adjust my motor to new fuel, new air filter, and new glow plug. Before i used to have to adjust it every tank and sometimes in between tanks because it would never stay running period. I never had to adjust it after setting it up with the new plug and adjusting everything just one time!!!!! I'm glad i got a new glow plug.

bud...,

Yes, putting the new 75cc tank on the old chassis requires a little dremel work to not rub. So much for a direct replacement.

If you have removed the engine shim, that alone probably made all the difference.

nope i left the shim in there. Just put a new plug and put on the K&N air filter. I know the K&N air filter isn't supposed to be that good but i like it.

Cool. Standard plugs don't normally make that much of a difference to me. As long as my engine runs, I'm ok

Can anyone give me a set up that will make the rear hook up more? I just can't come out of a turn without the car spinning out.

How about thinner diff oil, less rear downstop or more rear toe-in.

That's impossible, maybe what you meant is 21/50 on 1st gear and 25/46 on the 2nd gear.....

I have the stock diff oil in it right now and It seems pretty thin, is there some springs I should try or different shock oil? Also, I have already a good amount of toe-in.

try lighter oil in you rear shocks, if you are spinning out you need to make your rear softer.
