    Revo Gearing Questions

    Hello i have a few questions about the the revo gears for my jato 3.3
    I purchased a 40T spur and a robinson racing revo 20T CB
    I was wondering do i need to change anything else before i run my jato
    And how much difference in performance will i notice?

    Nothing else to do really. Once the gear mesh is set, you're good.

    As for performance increase, you lose acceleration (most of it was always lost to tire spin anyway), but gain a fair bit of speed.

    Did you loose much acceleration with the new gears and was the 73mph with the 20/40 gearing?

    So i have a question. I have a 36t spur that i purchased when
    i got the 40t spur when doing the revo gear conversion. Can i put
    the 36t spur with the 20t cb? and what difference would it make?
    Or would i have to lower the cb teeth as well?
