Default Gearing a Neo 1 Brushless w/ 415MSX

So I'm confused as to what the ideal gearing is for my brushless motor. Any of you local Socal Tamiya guys can chime in if you're familiar with this motor. I ran a 102 spur, and a 40 pinion...which gave me a final drive ratio of about 5.57. My car felt REALLY slow in the 19T mode on my LRP Sphere Brushless ESC.

Any suggestions? Note: I was practicing at the Tamiya racetrack in Aliso Viejo with the brushless, since some of you might be familiar with the track size/layout.

I was using a Neo 4 star and the Sphere comp esc combo at the Tamiya track to practice 19T. The manual said you have to gear at something like 9.x internal ratio, so I used a 22T pinion with a 102T spur on a 415. To make it like a 19T speed, I have to turn down the throttle end point to about 80% of full throttle. The Sphere Comp esc dont have the 19T mode.

Hey, what class are you running in the "fun race"? I'll be there this Saturday with Mike and Sunday as well.

I kind of guess it was you but want to verify. I won't be there this Sat but Sunday I will probably run GT1. Even you guys are going so it will be lots of people on Sunday, probably will be like a regional race.
