I'm buying a selection of motors to try, I just wondered what gearing I should be around. The ESC is a SC8.
What pinion choices for the following?
Stock 54t 0.8/32 pitch spur with a 3100kv 4 pole motor.
Mod 1 Revo 40t Spur with a 2650kv 4 pole motor.
there is no way to pinpoint an exact what is best for you over the internet. what you need to do is test them out. you will need a IR thermometer
Ok maybe Ive worded wrong.
What pinion would be a good "starting" Point.
Volatge is 3S.
I have an IR gun and I am aware of trial and error for gearing, but rather than buy every pinion under the sun, I thought id ask for a rough pinion to start.
there aren't a whole lot of pinions to buy, and they are cheap. since no 2 situations are ever identical, you really need to try using trial and error and checking temps
if running 3s, you are probably going to want to try the low-mid teens for pinions, and work up from there. I would start on the lower end to be safe

If it cant be broke, I'll break it.
So 12/40 mod1 with a 2650kv motor? Sounds lower than I thought?? In fact both seem lower than I thought? I was thinking of starting at 19/54 with the 3100kv and 16/17 pinion with the Mod 1 40 spur?
what are you converting to mod 1?
the stock gear is mod .8
if you feel it's too low, then go higher and test it.....
it's like you asked for answers, then told people they were wrong.....
It also depends on your driving style and the surfaces you run on. (grass, dirt, blacktop)
