tc3 gearing, 81/17, bad?

I just put a epic binary 2 10x1 motor in my custom monster truck.
It uses tc3 differentials and gears. I used an 81 tooth spur and a 17 tooth pinion, is that bad gearing, because my truck seemed almost as slow as a stock motor with 72/28 gearing.

I geared it for torque.

Thanks

you should try 19/81 a mod motor doesnt need tourq.. you need midrange and run time ... just my 2 cents..

The 19 doesn't work. THe mesh is to tight, because the motor mount isn't ajustable. I also found out that 2 of my battery packs are dead, so I used one of my older ones and it worked nice. Goes about 40mph and has plenty of torque. Also it pops endos when I brake.
