Default another spur gear gone, need help

Ok I am now done with the plastic Spur I keep melting the center out.Is there a Metal gear that I can change with the pinoin to give me more top end or is there only the stock metal gear for the stock pinion.Also I am running the Buggy MultiStud Tyre and wonder if this will change the way the truck runs since it's a 1.5 thinner then my Stadium and if it will should I go with a low end gear.
