Default Gearing a Reedy MVP

Ok, i bought a Reedy MVP and i have no idea how to gear it. I have a TL-01 and i was some more top end with the motor. The maximum output is 22598 RPM's. My track is going to be fairly small and lots of turns but i need some speed on strait. My gear ratio right now is 5.95 (19t pinion and a 47t spur, 29t counter gear). They lowest i can gear it is 4.92 (23t pinion) but i am not sure if i will get the top end i need. Please help before i return the motor for a new one.

Run the 19.......
because with a TL-01 you can only use a 19, or 21, or a 23 pinion.. Right???

If you need a little more speed go to the 21 pinion......
