hey guys, I got a quicky on gearing. How do I know if I am geared to high or to low. For ex. at metro during practice, I checked my motor and it was a little hot, so I geared one tooth down. And it got worse. So how do I know where to start with the gear and which way to go. P.S. I only run Banzai blue can motors at the JBRL tracks.

Thanks,

Gearing--

Early in the morning your motor will run cooler then as the track warms up. Also as the traction gets better the motor will work harder.

I temp my motors on the can just below the endbell. Temps should stay below the 170-180 range. You can actually undergear a motor and have it overheat as well. There is usually a 2-3 tooth "sweet spot"

Scott runs a T4. He should be able to help confirm what Mitch said about gearing.

Thanks,
I run a 18 or 19 tooth on my T4, depending on the track. Temping a motor after a practice run is tricky, unless you keep track of the amount of time you were on the track. We all stay out there a little too long some times. I personally never use a temp gun. If it doesn't fade after a heat, I'm good.

Hello

i raced last weekend outdoor offroad for the first time this year and won 4 wd stock at the 1st Nat's qualifier in our region.
The track was grass with a couple of ramp style jumps and a big table. This track will host the 4 wd Nat's 2007.
We had to use a handout 27 turn motor ( GM ) but with the SLINGSHOT power the motor run like hell.
With my TQ time in stock i had qualified 4th in mod.

From may 18-20th we will race 2 wd mod, this time with BANZAI power, on a new opened track in southern Germany.

Regards from Germany

Scott just uses his "calibrated" finger for temping!

Great job Ebi. Now that I am running for Kyosho I have a 4wd again. I have only run it twice so far but TQ'd the local club race and finished 2nd in the main (to Ryan so it was a Banzai/slingshot 1-2). My 12X6 has been running strong and effiecent. The test will come in two weeks on the very large Revelation track! (200 ft back straight! )

Go get em in 2wd mod!

Casper,

2 wd mod was won by 14 year old Kyosho team driver Christopher Krapp with a RB5. He is a mostly a TC driver and starts last winter with some indoor races.
Best Kyosho 4 wd mod was 1st b-main. There are 5-6 cars at the race, but
they break a lot. Mainly front + rear tower after crashing behind the table.
