    What's Your 'Pinion?

    Are the pinion gears with less teeth going to make the truck faster?

    Or are the pinions with more teeth going to make it faster?

    Thanks in advance because I'm mixed up about this.

    Bigger (more teeth) the faster.

    More teeth on the pinion, less teeth on the spur will give a higher top speed, but also less runtime and higher temps.

    5 teeth on the spur is about equal to 2-3 teeth on the pinion.
