u can even maybe go up to a 14 pinion. Try and see how it works. U may have to go higher.

i think someone told me like 10/92 makes it really fast, but what i see is less torque.

and as i see it, less torque is bad for the turns, cause id have to give it a minute to accelerate... not really but you get the point.

going with a higher gear will give u more top end. And smaller pinion will give u more bottom end.
