conical pinion and gear set up

the new black arrow car has a conical pinion and gear set up. is it like the old brass setups or is it to get perfect gear mesh with a normal toothed crown gear. or move it off centre. is there an advantage over the old brass setups, where you have a lot of contact area. john

QUOTE (martini917k @ 21 Aug 2012, 14:01) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Please learn the difference between a comma & an apostrophe; comma's look like this, & are on the bottom row of keys, next to the "m" on a "qwerty" keyboard.
The apostrophe is next to the "enter" key, & has very different uses.
It may be confusing because they look similar, but they are very different in application & it is very confusing to read your posts when you use one for the other.
Thank You.

Martini - we are here to talk about slot cars, not nit pick grammar.
But while you are in your glass house...comma's denotes the possessive of comma. (i.e. comma's usage, the usage of a comma).
the plural of comma is commas.

Now, back to gear teeth,

John, if by offset, you mean the shaft of the pinion is not on the same plane as the shaft of the crownwheel - not intersecting, then you will need hypoid gears. Straight cut gears, conical or not, would not mesh.
