Default SC10 brushless gearing.

Our new indoor track opened and I'm prepping my SC10
for racing action. I installed the Castle Sidewinder SCT V3
3800kv system (my first brushless car system). I wasn't
impressed with the performance and I was casing every jump.
I was running 19/87 gearing which is apparently too low. I may
try 25/75. I'm using 2s 5000 35c packs. Any suggestions are
appreciated, thanks.

Even a 30/75 could do it are there any smaller spurs that can fit,im not sure of your sc 10s internal drive ratio but on my previous tt phoenix bx,I had a 13-19/54 4000kv motor,which would be around the 30/75 ratio.

just stating because smaller pinions are usually cheaper.

I noticed that the truck was faster in reverse. I reversed Ch.2 and switched two motor wires,
I pinned the trigger and it took off like a rocket!
I had 25/81 gears installed. I bought several spurs/pinions to try at the next test and tune day.
