Default Help with gearing for Cyclone MooreSpeed WE

I need some help with gearing for my HB Cyclone WE. It has a stock spur, I'm running rubber tires, running on carpet with a Novak GTB and a 13.5 SS. What pinion size should I be running? I realize that it may depend on the track etc. but I'm looking for something thats not going to burn out my electronics and allow me to be competitive (speed-wise anyway) :-)

Thanks in advance!

Yes go to the Hot Bodies Cyclone thread and you'll find it there. post #15077.
I think they are running 100X46 so start at 100x44 and go by temp from there.
