My 23T pinion is for second gear, it is made by K factory, its hardened and long lasting than the normal one, I got it from a hobby shop in Singapore Rotor Hobby http://rotor.com.sg/car/acc_kfactory...main.htm#k1302

Its part no is K1337, it is meant for MTX 3 but will fit MRX3 and Kyosho cluth bell as well. For those whose going to put in MRX3 will have to drill the mounting holes at the chassis towards the front to get a properly mesh gear.

those are the .08 gears I don't see the old standard ones K factory was making in there . They did have a standard type 23 second pinion at one time because I have two of them. They must have discontinued it.

.08 is another option to get there.
Want to sell me one? (please!!!)

Testaniracing,

Looks like you're geared pretty high already. How big is the
track and how long is the back straight of the track you're
running at?

jwf-ronni,

I oval race at a fairly big parking lot and drag race. The strightaways of the oval track are about 200feet and when were drag racing it's about 150-200feet.

May I ask which engine do you run and what tire size do you run when you are gear at 17/23 49/45?

the track that I run, Crystal park in socal, i believe it has a 220ft back straight and I have tried 16/21 49/45 and 16/21 49/46, and I like the 46 better, yes i loose just a little on the top speed towards the end of the straight but seems like I gain accelation from the point it shifts to top speed.

Anyone has any input? Ron? Kev? Chris?

I have 2 c-5 collari and a jp mod. On the oval and drag at the end my buddy with a mrx3 with a 17/22 and 49/45 start to pull if I use a 17/21and 49/45. So I fugured that if I gear mine to a 17/23 it would help. If anybody has any advise please chime in.

We all know that gearing all depends on the track that we all
run at. Granted that its an oval track, with us not beeing able to
actually see how big it is and its characteristics, only you would
only be able to decide if you still need to gear up more..

The bottom line is that if the motor can still pull a higher gear,
then I'd say go for it. Ofcourse, provided that accelaration would
make the motor reach its peak RPM enough to maximize
the straight away (part of the track) before having to let off.

Hope this helps.

I agree with Ron, it's a very tall gearing split. At the shift point the engine may bog. I'd try going to 18 on first gear before going to the 23 on second.

Thanks for your input. Also I 've been looking into the .8m gears instead of a 23t second gear. Do any of you guys have any experience with the .8m gears?
