the ESC is a Novak gt7.
stock 61t spur and stock 19t pinion..
Does the stock motor have the tourqe to gear it down, or should I be letting it rev free-er (using a small pinion)?
any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
You need optional speed tuned gears and pinion gears. For eg. for silver and black mabuchi, you need 55T spur gear and 25T pinion gear ( 5.72 final gear ratio ). The top speed will be better.
If you want to keep the current gearing, you may use any 11T motor.
Check out the TT Gear chart :
