start with a pinion that has 2 fewer teeth than the stock one. it should be around there.

The easiest way to get speen is the pinion and li-po batteries. Li-po batteries have a 40-75% higher draw than NIMH. And they are WAAAAYYYYYYY lighter.

Have fun

for lipo battery u should only use it with an esc that has a voltage cut-off or your battery will be drained too far which will damage it.
