Kewl. I'll definately go for it. The dude better not front with the WS7. I damn well know how long he had it and with like 15 tanks through the thing it's surely worth the same price as my Picco .26.

BTW-That is noticably lower than the stock LW settings and with the lighter parts allowing the engine to rev a bit more. Still that rody engine would be sick. The NS12 is cheaper, but it's not race legal.

Well for that setup, it's only slightly off from the LW 2speed. It seems as if you're gearing for a bit less top end. Let me see the chart. Hold on.

actually I should have a little more top end as T go up I lose torque and gain top end. that is why I went up to a 22T on the first gear, this way I don't spin out of tight turns, and for the long straight I got the 28t which give me the top end my engine can handle...

Ok, the stock vs your settings

Stock

2nd gear 29T/54T 4.506

Your setting

2nd gear 28T/53T 4.580

Not much of a difference. If anything it may be slightly quicker on 2nd gear.

actually for the LW settings the stock was:
stock
21t/ 27t pinions and 59t/53t spurs

mine
22t/28t pinions and 60t/53t spurs

If what you mean is that I went back to the 28t, as of today yeah i went down because I felt the engine wasn't screaming at the end of the straight...

mmm I got my LW from rcmart.com...

maybe I should try on the second gear the 29t pinion with the 54 spur... I've been using the 53 spur because thats what stock meant to me since thats what the LW tranny came with, Im glad you told me different... lol
I will try 60t spur + 22t pinion and 54t spur + 29t pinion...

I guess this is a little F... UP because we could sit here and argue all night about something and and it's not even the same... lol
I'm glad we got that down, now I can go back and set it like it is supose to be.

yeah my shafts are from there too, look for them under GPM in the R-40 category parts.

Is it just me, or does that site load very slow. I'm on cable and I can go get something to eat and come back with the picture still now up yet. I guess RC mart sells their products differently than anywhere else. I'm not getting those integy parts. Wont need em.
