different gearing
 
so I lost the screw to hold my pinion to my motor shaft. and I was wondering what would happen to my speed/acceleration if I went to a lower teeth count on the pinion gear? wouldn't it give faster acceleration?

RE: different gearing
 
you'll have better accel, or punch, but not as much top end

which is a good thing with drifting right?

and i've got the Novak SS4300. anyone know a proper gearing for it for drifting?

got a new pinion but almost near stripped my spur gear. if i went lower teeth on the spur gear would i get faster acceleration or more top end?

Your Mesh on the Gearing would have been wrong for it to have stripped..
Just make sure that there is like only a sheet of paper width between the Spur and the pinion..

RE: different gearing
 
I don't think it was the meshing of the gears I think it could've been because the spur gear was 3 or 4 years old. It was the stock spur gear. And the lady at my LHS said that the reason it stripped was because I was now starting to drift it harder with lower gearing. I guess with the lower pinion gear tooth count it put more stress on the spur gear.
