Seeking gearing advice on Race Unlimited 3500KV motor. ran it for the first time on a small size HFAY track had to go all the way up to 53T/16T ( yes sixteen tooth pinion by PN ) to get the speed of the car equal to other racers on the track...this was with nimh batteries BTW. is this normal or not and what's the overall gearing sweet spot of this motor...figured your group would have the most info on this since i believe its also sold there. Thanks in advance.

ATTENTION RACERS!
Due to a potential travel schedule conflict, we are playing it safe and cancelling practice for this Friday Night (2/21/20).
*Please Note: Schedule in previous post has been updated to reflect changes.

SEE YOU ALL SUNDAY!!!!
