    28/76 geraring vs 28/83

    I have a variety of different pinions I was wondering what changing the spur fromk the stock 76 tooth to an 83 tooth would do for me? I mostly use my Bandit for bashing on the street, a lot of forums have shaown the the gear ration im running is a good match for street bashing but what do you guys use? what would be the benefit (if any) of me switching to an 83 tooth spur? Thanks

    Well if you switced to a larger spur, you wold havemore torque with less high speed and a smaller spur is vice versa. You also want to vary between gears to find the sweet spot for temps.

    +1 to what mike said. All about trying it out, and seeing what your best gear ratio is without ever getting above 140 degress. But u always want to find the sweet spot that keeps you well under that no matter how long the run. That is the key.
