One track we run on is very open and more of a 1/8 scale track and the other is a very tight 1/10 track. I know I will most likely have to gear different for each. Which do you recommend I start with? thanks alot
15 to 17 is where I gear my 4300 depending on track size. 14 works for tight tracks but doesn't give a lot of wheel speed to correct the truck if it noses down on a jump.
