Nandapro, I think goin up on ur clutchbell(pinion) would give you more
go on topend, but ur low down acceleration will be sacrifised, also
i think it depends on wot ur internal diff ratio is, but wot you are stating
is a big jump from 13t to 18t, depending on how big ur track is, with an
18t on, it will take a bit to wind out on topend, unless you are messing
around doin speed tests?

i would try goin with a 14 or 15 but to jump from 13 to 18 is huge and depending on track you will certainly see slower times and lack of performance with to high of gearing
