First of all, are you talking about a stock motor, which is a 27 turn? Or are you talking about a modified motor (low turns)

There is no ratio of # of turns to gear ratio its just therpm's of the motor that can tell you how fast it goes.

I'm running Team Paradigm motors, and recommend them, very good power, and they are tweaked for racing when you get them. Try the Monster Stock based motor, and run a 7.1 final drive ratio and you'll have some good power and speed.

they said that if you change your motor you should also change your pinion gear so that you will not sacfrice the torque and topspeed. is this true?

Gearing rule of thumb: 3/4 down the longest straight at the track, your car should reach top end speed. If so, the car is geared correctly.

If it's a large open track, you might go one teeth higher on the pinion to get higher top-end. On a small tight technical track, you might go one teeth lower, to ensure acceleration.

If you want to be a good driver fast, get a motor, that aint too fast !

Because a fast mator is quite hard to handle, while a sligthly slower one, will allow you to build up your driving skills faster. A good motor for this, is the Peak Panther (or a similar one).

Later on, you can get a faster stock motor.
