For transmission cars you need to know it's ratio for direct drive you use only tire diameter divided by gear ratio (spur/pinion).
The difference you stated for example if tire and spur size were unchanged then the 2.50 is a larger pinion, while the 2.35 uses a smaller pinion.
Transmissions vehicles
transmission ratio multiplies by tire diameter (distance across x Pi 3.14) divided by gear ratio (spur/pinion) = rollout
Direct drive pan cars
tire diameter (distance across x pi or 3.14) divided by gear ratio

Hankster, neither of your links for a gear chart or roll out work, they just take you to the front page for the forums.

WHAT??
You don't need charts or graphs?? You need math! :cool:

** Note: this formula is for pan car 1/12 or 1/10 scale cars with no trans..

ROLLOUT FORMULA:

Rollout = tire size (inches) X 3.142 X Pinion size / Spur size


To find pinion size at a certain rollout the Formula is this:

Pinion = Rollout X Spur size / Tire size (inches) X 3.142

Just rotate the formula to what you need...and keep it smiple! :thumbsup:
