Ok ok fine....
Its the 24 tooth rollout conversion for the Kyosho V One RR. It will work on an Evolution and Trinity Reflex as well. What it essentially does is adds 5 teeth to your total rollout. At a 16/20 44/48 gearing I am like 5.6:1 in 1st gear and 4.2:1 in second. The converison replaces the teo 19 tooth 2 speed shaft gears with much larger ones. The only drawback is that you have to use an engine with enough low end to push the car in the infield. I myself have been running an RB V15 with a lola body running Outlaw. The engine is still stock and flies with that ratio. Plus it allows you to run tiny tires and still have plenty of gear left.

Bounty Hunter;

Yes, I even went out and bought the pulley set for myself, but decided that it may be TOO tall for my needs. (still NIB if you're interested)
I have a 23T pinion coming and with the R40 spurs too, I should be fine from now on.

Guys;

Today I found out that the 1M Spur Gears from an HPI R40 are a direct fit on the Reflex (I tested this myself). The R40 has 43T and 42T second gear spurs availible which will help on the larger tracks and cut down tires.

I believe with the 24T conversion, you're at 6.0 on the first gearing and 4.4 on the 2nd with the mentioned spurs and pinions.

Now you do know that Kyosho makes a 15T first gear and a 19T second. As far as being too tall.... Well like I said the only requirement is to have an engine with enough low end to carry the infield. But if you are selling your gears, I am always looking for spares.

The smallest you can go on the reflex is a 16, yokomo gt4 pinoins work for the first gear.

Definately could use a little more power.

I did get my 43T spurs today, so I'll have them on the Car for tomorrow evening.

See you at the Track!!
