what is the better of the two on a 98x36 carpet track...??? is it better to have a larger spur and pinion to get the gear ratio you want or a smaller spur and pinion to get the same ratio?....

example..optimum ratio is 3.0 and 3.09.. to get this you will need...

108 spur and 35 pinion=3.0
108 spur and 36 pinion=3.09
or

99 spur and 32 pinion=3.0
99 spur and 33 pinion=3.09

I hate to respond this way, but this topic has been covered many times. If you search the oval threads you should find plenty of good info.

I like bigger spurs. If you are racing 19 turn at TRD then go with a 120 or 124 spur.
