Changing Sprockets

hey guys, quick question. i thought this would be easy but seems like anything i touch here lately isnt easy. my blaster came with 12 tooth front and a 40 tooth rear sprockets. it also came with an extra 13 tooth front. i was going to put the 13 on the front to try to raise the gear ratio (to help keep the front end down) but i couldnt get the chain to go back around it. i was thinking that one tooth wouldnt make that big a difference in chain length, will it? will i have to lengthen my chain or get a new one? thanks guys.

Re: Changing Sprockets

u will most likely have to kick the rear closer up for the chain to make it around....yes the one tooth will make enough of a difference...

Re: Changing Sprockets

is the blaster rear end adjustable in that way? i know my old quadracer was, but i looked at it last night trying to figure out someway of getting it to move and i didnt see one. anyone know? maybe i was just not looking in the right places. thanks.

Yeah, don't know if one tooth will help much though, it will also give you a higher top speed, but, as you thought, less excelleration.

Re: Changing Sprockets

thanks josh, i just wanted to make sure i was thinking correctly. i wasnt really sure if one tooth would make that big a difference or not, but i figured since i already had it i might as well try it.

Re: Changing Sprockets

yes the rear is adjustable...it has to be in order to adapt for the chain stretch....and one tooth in front is the equivilent of 2-4 teeth in the rear...depending on the ratio of course....
