When I raced wing cars you always ran an 8 tooth pinion on an open motor... Is this the case with drags also???

It all depends on the set up we need more info. Tier size rear gear track length so on.

Seems like the ratio to use was 12/52. Foamy can confirm the right ratio.

Yeah, 12/52 with 15 turn 24 arms. That's with cobalt motors, ceramic c-cans would be with 8's.

I would be using a 64 .459 in a short magnet 27 setup... 1" rears in what I think is a DRS 05 chassis,[yes I know it is a c can chassis but I think it will work ok]

or I could use this one of unknown origin...

Chassis look very heavy I'm guessing >60 grams
If so
11/54

I was going to offer him a cobalt DRS chassis I have but then I realized the post is almost 7 years old :D

 

Although the information is still helpful for me as I'm probably going to stuff a old Camen 27 in it and need a place to start with gearing

I still have & run both of those cars occasionally... Most of what I do now involves Hardbodys or rails with styrene bodys.
