I would run either a 19t-21t pinion gear with the 58 spur gear. The kit motor is just a silver can...27t I believe, but...only fast with GT-3 gearing(and still not as fast as the stock class)
If you are using the plastic shocks...80wt with one-hole pistons works awesome for me. Of course, I am on a carpet track, so...that may be too stiff. Because the piston holes are so big...80wt feels like 60wt or so in a TRF shock.
BTW...nice choice on car. See if there is any TCS events by you...they are a blast. Also, don't hit anything...or your bevel gears will strip in the front
