I agree best to just change the center gearing. I don't like the way the MCD gearing is design it is kaotic. I like something more direct.

Ziggy you can also play around with C gear which is usually 25 tooth and D gear which is usually 24 tooth if you add these 2 gears togather you get a total of 49 . In theory you should be able to use any gear combination in the C, D location so long as it totals 49. I think the BZM motor could handle the following gears A gear 44tooth, B gear 20 tooth, C gear 30 tooth, D gear 19 tooth.

After you post I checked the exploded diagram and I thought the middle gear between the pinion and the spur was a single gear. I now know its not so there a re a number of options. I'll see what can be done to the 2 middle gears to increase the speed

Cheers

I believe you can get some decent top end speed out of that MCD. Keep playing with the gearing.

My streamliner is starting to take shape.

I had to really stare at the pic before I realized that the coil wasnt attached to the fuel tank. Id hate to see any sort of fail in that. lol
