View Full Version : Gearing for S16D

04-21-2003, 06:42 PM
Hello Paul, I plan on going to a new track to race a Blue King. They run sealed S16D motors with stamped chassis and winged bodies. Could you help me out with a gear ratio? 3/32 with 64 pitch gears.

I would guess an 11 or 12 tooth pinion.

Are planning on racing the Flexi-Wing class at The Pit Stop, in Athens? If so, I have finished pretty well in a couple of those races using a 12 pinion and either a 37 or 38 ring gear ... depends a lot on your tire size.

Hope this helps ... and look forward to seeing you there.

Yes I plan on coming up there soon. A friend of mine was there a couple of weeks ago and said it was a lot of fun. I just need some where to start on a gear ratio.
