An easy way to find that gearing sweet spot is that the motor should peak about 3/4 of the way down the longest straight. After the run feel the temp of the motor if you can hold your finger on it for 5 seconds comfortably then your gearing is about spot on.

26-30mm is a good start. Low side for tighter tracks and high side for larger tracks. Low side for rpm motors, high side for torque motors. Those are a safe starting ranges. Yes, temp your motor! It is important!! You can also see and hear if the car is right when you know your equipment well. Some guys might gear to the moon and beat the crap out of their motors to go a little faster, especially with newer and powerful cells, just because you can. Not recommended for everyone though.

Here's an idea, ask at the track you're racing at. The guys that are fast will normally help. You know who they are, just ask them. at the very least, they will give you a decent starting point.
