Hi guys,

I have a stretched TLR Typhon with Castle X 8S/1650kv combo with 6S and wondering what size pinion I should run? Setup for speed runs but I’m not familiar with this car as I have a Limitless for speed runs…currently has a 25 tooth pinion, is this a good starting point? Let’s assume I want to achieve 100mph for now :)

Thanks 🙏

If it ain't broke, you're doing it wrong.

Assuming you are using the stock 50T spur and Hoons. https://scriptasylum.com/rc_speed/top_speed.html

Assuming stock 50T spur and 100mm tires, you’d need a pinion north of 40T to reach 100mph. And a pinion that size won’t fit.

I’d recommend buying a smaller spur gear and also learning how to use a gearing app or site.

It’s running a Vitavon centre transmission so I think it will accommodate a 40t pinion
