Default Gearing Question

I want to put a Reedy MVP Stock Motor in my TRF414M WCR and I was wondering what the best spur/pinion combo would be to use. I was told that the WCR chassis was designed for mod motors, will the MVP fit? Any help is appreciated.

The stock motor is the same size as a mod motor.

Gear ratio could be anything from 5.5:1 overall if you're on a big track, to 8:1 overall on a tight track.

for bigger tracks, i run 64p 112/41 (5.82) and for smaller tracks 48p 90/30 (6.39) im using 2400s and this ratio gives me enough runtime to finish 5 minutes without losing too much punch.
