Default cyclone gearing?

hi all, im new here and to the onroad racing scene... im not a newb to onroad cars just havent ever had a top of the line car, i had a xxx s sport and screwed around at the track and im hooked lol, so

im buying a cyclone moore speed edition, i frove a few at my local track and its waaay better then any tc4 or whatever i have driven, but i have a few ???'s

first, how would i gear this guy? im buying off of tower hobbies so it would be better to but from there.. but im going to race in stock for now, im going to use a trinity co27 motor (unless theres a bettter 27 turn).. my track is more turns, so can u guys give me a estimate on the pinion? id guess but i know that i can only go so small till it wont mesh close enuff.. i dont want to buy a new spur, so if i can use the stock 100 tooth that would be sweet

thanks!

EDIT, im racing on a out door smooth track, with rubber tires

that pretty much covers a stock motor for tight to large tracks for stock motors.if you go 19 turn and mod you may need more but not for stock
