    Quick gearing question



    As you can see i'm busy replacing the chassis on my first MERV, bought it busted off ebay. The gearing it has it in currently is 31/45 - which if i am not mistaken looks to be stock slash 1/16 gearing rather than MERV. The only other gearing that came with it is the standard 28t pinion. I'm currently running 2s in this car.

    So, has anyone run 31/45 gearing? If so, what's it like?

    Do you think i should order a standard 50t spur gear to put it back to stock MERV gearing, and go from there?

    I'm planning on using it for a whole range of surfaces, so just want fairly standard gearing for now.

    Thanks....

    I would try it with the 50t until you know how hot it runs. 28/50 is a good starting point
