Default 1/8 electric newbie question

I converted an xray 808 to an e-car and pair it with a castle 2200kv and a 4cell lipo. My question is, back in my 10th scale racing days I know they made different pitch pinions for different spur gears... is it the same concept for 1/8 scale? Or are they all the same. What pitch AND tooth count should I be running. Mostly running on medium size tracks tight technical indoor clay tracks
Thanks for the help

You will run Mod 1 pinions with 1/8th"/5mm shaft, Stock spur on the 808 is 42. I currently run 15/42 on 4s with a 1900kv Tekin. You should be in the same range. I keep 13 through 17 in my box but dont change much except 14, 15, and 16.
