Get the Most Out of Your Gearing
Layouts vary from track to track, and if you run at the same track, chances are that, eventually, there will be a layout change. Take the time to make sure your vehicle is properly geared for that layout. You’re looking for a good combination of speed and torque to allow your vehicle to get around the track as efficiently as possible. Gear too low and your vehicle will have plenty of torque to get out of the turns and over jumps but speed will be reduced. Higher gearing will get you speed, but if you go too far, there won’t be enough torque to get out of the turns fast enough, properly make jumps, or even reach full speed before you reach the end of the straight. Start with the recommended gearing in your vehicle’s manual and adjust from there.
Swap out your gearing to get the best possible performance for a particular track.
