Slot.It Gear Ratio Chart

Gear Ratio Tables
 
Two general types of gear ratio tables are available using the links below.  The first type are basic gear ratios which simply divide the number of teeth on the crown or spur gear by the number of teeth on the pinion gear. The following link will give you our complete Slot.It Gear Ratio Chart. Along the gear ratios, you will find information on all available Slot.It gears and notes about their usage. Keep it as a handy reference when building cars and ordering parts.

While basic gear ratios are useful, they do not take into account an important variable - the rear tire diameter.  For example, suppose 2 cars are setup with a 9 tooth pinion and 27 tooth crown gear (sometimes referred to as "9/27").  Referring to the basic gear ratio table, we see the gear ratio is 3:1.  Let's further suppose the 2 cars are identical in every respect (make, chassis, motor, etc.) with one exception.  The rear tire on the first car is 19mm in diameter while the second car's rear tire diameter is 20mm.  The "effective" gear ratio of the cars is different since the second car will travel further for each revolution of the motor than the first.  Use the links below to view and print effective gear ratio tables.
