Re: gearing help

Re: gearing help

I need some help with gearing.  I am running a Champion Turbo Flex chassis with 1/8 axle, 48 pitch gears, Nascar body, and a Twister 16d motor.  Everyone is running the Best of the West 16d with a gearing of 28/8 on our 145 hillclimb track.  When I run that gearing my motor tops out in about 10-15.  I am thinking about moving to a 28/9 but am not sure if that is what I should do?  Please help?
