RC18 Tuning – Rollout

RC18 Series Tuning - Roll Out
Rollout affects the gearing of your vehicle.
Rollout is a measurement that helps calculate gearing. It is something that is used primarily for foam tire setups, but can be applied to rubber tire setups, also.

Rollout is defined as the distance a vehicle moves forward per revolution of the motor. It can change due to tire wear or a tire size.  Rollout is measured using this equation:

Tire Circumference x Transmission Ratio x (Spur x Pinion) = Final Drive

Your Rollout depends on your tires circumference. You can calculate the circumference by doing the math: Tire Diameter x 3.14 = Circumference (oh boy….math!)
