    Hi guys, newbie here starting off with MA. I have recently gotten atomic tuned 2 PRO motor. I have 2 questions. The track that I'll be racing is usually a technical track (with at least 1 slope and 1 jump)

    1) What kinds of pinion for the motor should I get?
    2) What kind of tyre should I get? small, large?

    Would be great if you could give me the item description and part number too!

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers

    Hi @Atlas

    Before we can make suggestions it would be handy to know what kit you have started out with.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    I'm using the MA Spec starter pack.

    I think the purple pinon gear is the most commonly used, and for tires, probably go for medium diameter.

    The MA starter pack comes with carbon pinions and medium super hards. They're pretty good as is.

    Just run the normal purple pinions that come with the kit as well as the super hard tires. They will work really well. What are the basics of the class you are racing in? This makes a big difference in the advice given.
