i have an 08 and i tested both the 09-10 which is the 47/44, and the 08 helix which is the 44, i also tested both springs.

For off trail with the 1.75 track, myself i would stick with the 44, it seemed to react better off trail with the 44, rather than the 47/44.

fyi - the 08 shorty had a straight 44 with a purple spring, the 09 & 10 shorties have a 47/44 with a green spring (less beginning rate than the purple, same ending). for comparison, what does the renegade run with the wider and longer track - maybe 44/42 and 25/45 gearing?? maybe a starting point . . .

If you notice a bog at 40mph and up, or laggy rpms, change the helix back and you will see what i meant in my last post.

i have the 47/44 with the green right now and i am taking it out for those reasons.

The straight 44 was way more fun off trail to me.
