Get the Most Out of Your Gear­ing

RC Car Action - - HOW TO -

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.
