Stock gearing is fine. Stock the SC8 is undergeared IMO.. With the stock 28 and 16t CB it's more of a drifter.. I have a Mach 427 with 17T CB and it FLIES.. I would think with that 21 the stock gearing is perfect. I even ran a Picco P7 Evo 3 with 17T CB briefly in mine and it flew and lost nothing on bottom.. Try stock and see how it goes..
