Hey guys, I am trying to determine which gear ratio is best to use for my project. We have 2 cars attached by rope, and whichever pulls the other one on its side, that car wins.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We are given a motor with the following specs:

rpm@torque=3500

rpm stall torque=0.61Nm

So I was wondering if there is a procedure/formula to determine the best gear ratios for optimum torque transfer to the shaft/wheel, considering the given motor specs?
