Well, if you're new to this(& it sounds like you are), then I'd suggest you use 48 pitch for now, until you get comfortable with setting the gear mesh, & gain soem driving experience. Keep in mind that 64 pitch gears can strip quite a bit more easily if seriously stressed(like when hitting a lot of things) or if you get the gear mesh off too much(which doesn't take much). Thenwhen you feel that you'd like to have more fine control over final drive ratios, you could give 64 pitch a try(I don't think you'll notice a difference in efficiency or noise if you set the mesh right with either).....
No i am not new and i can mesh gears just fine, it just that all my cars run 48P gears and i find them a lil loud.

I use Top Cad spur gears. They are a carbon composite gear that does not flex and is more resistant to stripping.
These are the same spurs as on the Yokomo YRX-12.
They come in 48 and 64 pitch.
