Default Brushless Gearing Guide

Just thought I would through this out here.

www.comeseethis.com

There are a lot of sites out there that will give you a gearing chart so you can will know what final drive ratio a particular pinion and spur gear will get you, but how do you know what is the best FDR for your particular application? This site wille help you figure that out. Pick your car and motor and it will tell you what the motor manufacturer recommends for a FDR, and what pinion and spur gear you can use to get it.

I don't get it...I run 16/86, guess I'm 1500% off from ideal? I couldn't even find a combo to make it good...



and darn it, my hand is sore from all the pinion clicking, can't I just enter a darn number?!

The reason you are getting that is because the data is not 100% complete. The results are based on a specific motor and vehicle type combination. If the motor manufacturer does not have a FDR for a particular motor/vehicle type, the site will not work. In your case, Castle Creations does not (or at least I have not found) a suggested gearing for a CORR truck and their 4600kv motor.
