Gearing question for HPI MT

Post by jonathan blystr » Thu, 05 Jul 2001 04:57:52



Hey there,

Got a question as to what gearing those who have electric HPI MT's are using?

Do you use different gearing onroad v.s. offroad?

I have a buggy mt with the offroad tires and it seems sluggish while its onroad.  I am using a stock x-star, 1500 mah battery, Novak m1....  96 tooth spur and 16 tooth pinion

Thanks for your help.

Man, what is with this?  I tried to respond to this twice already, and
each time it got dropped?!?!  Third time a charm ...?

Offroad I use 96/22, this is the gear ratio that comes with the kit.  I
also use very large tires; they are the size of ProLine's Mashers,
although I do not know what my tire's brand is.
Onroad I use 90/31, this gear ratio I took out of my HPI Rally.  The
tires that you get with the Dodge kit, the V-Groove, IMHO suck -
absolutely no grip unless my driveway is perfectly clean.  I think the
DirtHawgs (that come with the Buggy kit) are much better.  I'm gonna
hafta invest in some of those.

Are you sure?  I don't mean to question you, but according to my manual
that comes with the MT, 96/16 should not be able to physically fit in
the MT.  Anyway, this should be slugish.  Go bigger pinion or smaller
spur for more speed, the other way for torque.
