Default Quick FT B4.1 gearing question

Just soldiered a none sensored 5700kv motor into my 2WD buggy. The only spur gear that I have is a 83. Will a 19pinion be fine?

One side note. I'm running a Mamaba Max Pro ESC, can I still run cheat mode or squeeze more juice in another mode?

Do what you think is necessary. The gearing will be fine. But more power or speed from the 5700 in a 2 wheel drive? Good luck keeping it aimed straight coming out of a turn.

Thank you Sparky. I'm going to race pro mod today and need a competitive motor. I have tried a 10.5 cranked in timing and buggy wasn't fast enough.

Got your PM. My MMP temps have been excellent, never had it past 105. But in your PM I'm going to stick to gearing only. Maybe I'll pick up a 22pinion if the temps on the 19 are good.

Next Sunday I'll be officially be in Az and can't wait to run Padd docks.
