Default Change gearing when using higher powered batteries?

I'm just curious, if you have a 28/83 gear set up, and you want to throw in a 10000 mAh 11.1V LiPo pack; do you have to change the gearing to handle the higher mAh battery packs, or can you run them with the same gearing. The car I'm referrencing is the new Rustler VXL.

I'm also wondering what kind of speed I can achieve with the 28/83 gearing with a 10000 mAh LiPo pack. Any where around 60-70 mph?

You can use same gearing and would get about 50-55 mph with 11.1 volts.
