Default DESC210 Gearing Help Needed

I have a DESC210 rtr. I upgraded the motor and esc to the Duratrax onyx 3930kv 1/10 scale waterproof combo. I am currently running an 87t spur and a 19t pinion. Im looking to get more torque using the 87t spur with another pinion. Motor temps of right now with the setup is 130-145 degrees. I ordered a 17t pinion in hope to get cooler temps and more torque. Motor is rated for 170 degrees. Any ideas on what gearing would give me a good amount of torque using the 87t spur?

Not sure if this helps ya buddy but, I'm running an Orion VST2 8.5 in mine with a 21 tooth pinion and 87 spur. It's fast and runs super cool(UK). Mine is the kit version running MM4 gearbox and ball diff.

Not familiar with that combo, I would recommend asking in this thread http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...c210r-255.html
