I bought a package of 5 pinion gears from A Main Hobbies 17,18,19,20,21. I tried gearing down gears yesterday. It comes with a 23 t pinion. I tried a 21 tooth pinion and was not thrilled with the results. I then went with the 20 tooth. Didn't notice much if any difference. So then I went with the 19 tooth. Still not all that much different. There I stopped for the day. I will try the 18 tooth next good day I can get it out, raining today. I went with a 15T motor on my Ruckus from a 20T motor it came with. I went from the stock 18 tooth pinion to a 17 tooth and what a difference. I just may do the same on this Camaro since it is also a 15T motor.
Looking for quick acceleration, not necessarily topend. Let you know how this turns out. I am interested in what effect the 27T pinion gear will bring as it is what is listed on the chart as the most effective for this motor. $5.00 spent may be worth it to satisify my curiosity for this gear.
