Default Gearing

Anyone try a 18T? Did it give a little more punch? What did it do to the top end. I am new to fifth scale but been in MX for a long time. On a 2 stroke, if you wanted it to get on the pipe sooner you just geared it down. Does it work the same with these motors. By the way running stock motor. Thanks in advance.

18t will give better bottom end and it will get to top speed faster but will be slower at top speed

20t will give higher topspeed and less bottom.

Thanks RutCutter. Was looking to see if anyone has tried the 18 yet. Looking to see if it made a noticeable difference with the stock 26.

I run the 18T on the track.
IMO it gives me an advantage running in a stock engine and pipe class.
I will have to say that on our track the stock engine is a bit underpowered so it gets me out of the hole faster. I did find myself running out of top end in several places on the track but for us the races are won in the slower more technical parts of the track.
Its a combination of track style and driving style that will determine if its right for you.

I say get an 18T pinion and try it.
When you order dont forget to get a set of 18T mesh spacers as well.
Let us know what you think.

I think Eddy is right 18t would work well with the stock engine and pipe.

Im running a BZM Torque tuned rig with a VRC pipe and i find 19t winds up too fast out of a tight corner and the wheels just spin so im swapping mine out for 20t to see how that works out!!

I agree. I have the 18T on my truck with a stock motor which is much better then the stock 19T in a smaller or technical track env., it gets up to speed out of the corners much faster. If you are just bashing and running it in wide open spaces then you may want to stay at 19.
