So far Im only using JK MB on our flat track with flexi chassis/LMP body and we are gearing them 13/35 mostly. What would one gear a retro Hawk for starters in this configuration? I was thinking 8/36 in 64p or I can do 72p as well. I do contenders 7/42 for flat track flexis but I dont think retro Hawks are comparable. What say you retro Hawk experts!

A JK MB is not the same as a retro hawk, it's a much slower motor

Try 10/36-37. I agree with GM Power. This should be a really good starting point.
