Great read! I had not thought about imbalance until I read that thread. I am buying the crank gears from Crimson. Now I have to decide if I am going to tack and pin them.

Imbalance with the pins are welds isn't an issue if they are evenly spaced, plus the diameter of the circle of welds and pins is so small that they wouldn't effect the balance even if they weren't evenly spaced.

I was wrong about TFS recommending to weld or pin the gears, what they say is when using these gears on high HP builds they recommend having the crank machined for a full length key.

That wasn't an option for me so I welded and pinned.

Yikes, the guy in the thread below (Travis) had problems with the TFS crank gears moving around when he only used one pin.

Its an aggressive NA build with 125 lb springs and higher RPMs.

I will be over 500rwhp so I guess I should pin and weld.
