Default Proper Traxxas Rustler Lipo Setup

Hi Eeveryone,
I am new to the RC world and have recently purchased a used Traxxas Rustler VXL which came with a MaxAmps 8000Mah 3s Lipo battery. I have run the car a few times and am really enjoying it. I have programmed my ESC to "training" mode for now so Ican get a feel for the car before I take the speed to the next level.
Since my Rustler is used Iwanted to take it apart and make sure that everything is properly maintained and set up correctly for use with a Lipo pack. My questions are mainly concerning the gear box:

What size gears should Ibe using or be staying away from?
What greese should I use to regrease inside the gear box?

What upgrades do you recommend to make my truck run as smooth and as fast as it should?

Thanks for any feedback!
