HI

I am looking for some advise on what gearing to run my x5 squared on for this weekend at our first regional and also the first time with this car in anger as so far I have only been able to is make sure it works

I'm running a 10x2 peak vantage motor with a Novak GTX speedo
The car has got a 104 tooth spur.

The track is astroturf and is being held at the Eastracks if this helps.

Many thanks in advance.

Actually when I ran brushed I was rarely on anything higher than a 17-18. Defo start at the bottom end of the range and work up.

Here you go Shy, but my set ups are way different now as I have learnt a lot more about the cars since.

I have put them in but also how I have been running the cars recently that to be honest I would be tempted to try first if I was to go there again.
