Default Gear Ratio Link?

Does anyone have a link or have a chart for gear ratio's? We have a slash and a couple SC10's and I'm wanting to gear them all down a bit so I don't have to worry about the motor's getting too hot.

ThunderbirdJunkie can honestly say that thing is inaccurate.

It tells him to run 19/84 gearing with a Castle 5700, which is too tall for the 4600.

Use this only as a starting point.

Good point. The ratios at comeseethis are based on user input and (where available) manufacturer's recommendations. The more popular combinations/motors will tend to be more accurate but they make good starting points as T-Bird says.
