Default 501X gear chart

Mike West kindly made a gear chart for the 501X using different pulleys and spurs - so rather useful!

I put it in a PDF and added a link to the review

its here if you want it in PDF format:

Jimmy, can we get a new gear ratio chart created for the new big belt and pulley conversion (18T center pulleys with 37T front and rear pulleys) using both the 96T Tamiya and 87T Associated B4 spur gears?

I got the LRP 6.5t bonded, and the manufacturer suggests a 13.5:1 ratio for a 4wd buggy. Now according to the the Big belt chart, I need to slam a 13t pinion into the buggy while I am using a 87t Spur.

Does this sound right?
I thought all the bonded rotors have more torque?

I don't think anyone runs a pinion that small on them. The manufactirer recommendations are very conservative with the some of the brushless motors.

I was chatting to someone at the race today and he ran a 6.5 on a 21 pinion (don't know what spur) I know others run 5.5s on a 17/87 ratio.

Thanks for the info,

I ask because the 6.5t does not feel all that quick...?
I have started on a 21/87, felt very bland--- ended up with a 15/87 and feels much beter? 15t is the smallest I have in pinions, I am starting to think it might want to run 15/96 to get it closer to 13.5:1 ratio..?

Soooo not brushed...?

That gear chart is very useful, thanks Jimmy
My worlds car has this gear ratio 15/91
15 tooth pinon, and 91 tooth spur gear

With that Tekin Redline 362 motor I have and Tekin R1 pro
I should hit the 50 mph mark with it.
