Almost a yes only if I understand what you are saying correctly, however, AE does not make spur gears from 48 all the way up to 54 in a 1 tooth increment (but they do for pinion gears from 20 all the way to 27T...go figure)......they only made 4 spur gears, 48,50,52 and 54............because of that, if you are using stock setting 22/26 with 54/50 (I sold my NTC already and I really forgot which one is stock giving gears) you can only go in 4 tooth different's gears.....like your stock 22/26.
No matter what combination you go, they must be in 2, 4 or the most 6 tooth different. Unlike 2 speed gear boxs like Serpent, Mugen or HPI R40, you can mesh any pinion gears with different tooth spur gears.........
But all in all, NTC is best setting in 54/48 spur and 21/27T pinion, that is only for LARGE high traction track........if you are running a smaller track, still, use 54/48 spur but use 20/26T pinion.......I found the NTC3 handle and run much better in 6 tooth different then 4 tooth........lots of low-end torque and crazy top speed once it kicks in the 2nd speed.
