hi dose anyone know what gears i should get for maximum top speed at the mo im running the norm 3 gears and norm clutch bell for a menace gtr and big 6 ..same engine and gears... but i see the fusion28 turbo has a 24-28-32T - clutchbell and it looks just like my one as do the gears so would they fit on mine and would it go faster?

also seen posts about wolf parts they do a  clutchbell for schumacher would that go faster than the fusion28 bell?

If your car is reaching maximum rpm in 3rd gear then getting a larger pinion gear will make it faster.

If the engine on your car does not reach maximum rpm in 3rd gear then putting a larger pinion will not make it faster.....you need more power/less weight.

thanks for the advice Anthoop .....yer they defo reach maximum rpm in 3rd gear so i will be getting a larger pinion then. now i just need to find out whats better a wolf pinion or a fusion28 turbo pinion im not sure how many teeth are on a wolf one and im guessing the wolf is better because when i lookup things on getting more speed outta your car wolf seems to come up alot very good rep for his mods ,,tuneing knowhow plus they look way better.

grinding the ports on the sleeve too to get a better flow just slightly doe im not looking to grind off alot just bearley enough to smooth the flow and not going near the crank as i dont want to unbalance it

im also trying to find out what is the best crank for this engine   norm or moded one ..best carb,,,tips tricks any help is welcome

The Wolf pinion is supplied with 4 gears (they screw on) the largest combination is the same as the 28 Fuion- 24/28/32.....the other gear is a 20T. The Wolf stuff is excellent and he is the most helpful guy you will ever deal with, I really can not rate him and his stuff highly enough.  

One thing to bear in mind is that Wolf was making this stuff ages ago and I can only presume that he still has parts available, send him an email.

When you say grinding the port you are talking about on the outside of the sleeve..little fangs and stuff?

Plenty of ways to improve engine performance before getting the dremel out. What fuel are you using? The exhaust is the same as the Fusion/Menace?

It sounds like you are just doing high speed runs?

thanks for the info Anthoop do u know what the difference is between the 4 gear wolf and the fusio28 pinion as they both have 24/28/32t are they the same top speed or dose the wolf pull off faster because of the extra gear?

i hope he still has some parts left as like u pointed out these parts were made ages ago my cars are old or as schumacher say vintage lol

ordoe i think there still one of the fastest out there defo the fastest 1/6 maybe 1/8 too?

yes anthoop i am talking about the out side of the sleeve maybe with fangs not sure yet ..whats your opinion on it ..do or dont

i norm use 25% -30% fuel and same fusion-menace exhaust ordoe was gonna try a traxxas-savage twin exhaust i might lose power might not just like the look of it.

i use the cars for high speed runs plus ragsing around wembley stadium so theres is  more than enough space for top speed fun

 The clutch bell supplied by Wolf came with 4 screw on gears, you can only use 3 of those at any one time.....so you could choose to run with 24/28/32...or....20/24/28.

I will guess the twin exhaust will not be good.  ..but if it is fun go for it.
