    Default 2 speed gearing.

    Got a 34cc OBR reed with a 2 speed blackbone gear set.

    Any info on best gears to use?

    I currently have 18/56 and then 23/53

    The gear change don't seem that dramatic.

    Did a speed run on cut grass @ 53.1mph don't know if that's good or not for gearing and engine.

    What's peeps experiences or advice?

    Gears are personal mate if you feel the engines not revving out gear down on the 2nd.
    But after using one for a few years don't have a 5 tooth jump, I did but caused no end of issue and also change around 15k tops same reason less issues.

    Just stick with a single gear....... Never been a fan of 2 speeds in a 1/5th scale as you can get very close to same speed with a high powered engine ( Which you have ) and good gearing.

    Buy a tacho too so you can check your top end RPM's out as it may not be tuned.
