The front's at least as easy as the rear if you have an air impact.
Front sprockets are also a lot cheaper. I personally wouldn't go to a 14
because of the increased wear. Is this for TGPR? I can't think of
another track that would call for much shorter gearing than stock.

Maybe he couldn't get the equivalent rear for some reason.

I think 15/47 is the closest. Which track is it?
