Default 27t to a 19t gearing?

Right now I'm running an Orion core stock with a 27t pinion and I just bought an Epic 19t ......... So should I gear it down a couple teeth on the pinion or up?

what car are you running .. I ran a 4mag 19t and had to go up on a tc3 by 2 teeth. and also on my xxxs .. hope this helps, I ran that motor in stk class too .. so go up 1 and see how it does and then try down one ,, again I dont know which car your running or track conditions...

a change would be a nice thing .. start at 27 pin and go up ,then chk motor for heat .. should run pretty fast..

For 19turn use a final ratio of around 5.3 to 5.6

5.3-5.6 sounds a little over geared. Track must be Huge!

I know I was just making sure that they were the same, because I wanted to get the same brand that you had because they seamed to work great.
