Default Mongoose G4

Hi, I have just bought a rd logics mongoose and it is very simmilar to team magic g4. I have put and rb r3 engine on it. The only problem for this car is that I don`t know how to have a good ratio for this car. It doesn`t have a good punch in sharp cornering and in straits it has to have much more top speed. Does anyone know how to help me?

Ian

what gearing are you using ?
i think by memory the std gearing is 19/24 pinions, and 51/46 spurs.
try 18/23 pinions and 52/47 spurs. the pipe your using on the engine also plays a factor with engine performance.

Go with Patto's suggestion.
The older cars ran fairly tall gearing std out the box.
To help as well you could go to a smaller brake pulley to shorten the internal transmission ratio.
