Basically, the spur will do the opposite, as the pinion. So one tooth LESS on the pinion, equals a non-changed pinion with a spur with approx. 3 MORE teeth. And vice-versa. It's all about changing the relationship.
However, changing the spur, will cause the motor to be moved sligthly more. In a car like the HPI pro2, it was up/down, the motor changed. So here the idea was to use a spur as large as possible, because that lowered the motor, thus lowered the CG.
In the MI2, the movement is front/rear, and since I dont have the car yet, I cant make any recommendations. I would assume, that moving the motor forward, will give sligthly more steering. But since it's rotating, there's more into it, than just moving dead weight forward
