Default TB02 Gear Ratio

I own stock Tamiya TB02. use esc LRP V7.1 look fast at accleration compare to my Serpent GP car .I am using an old Trinity Monster Horse power motor.Can I buy any 16v capacitor with 10,000uf or more rating to solder on the motor .Only problem I got is the brake I cant get it hard jam after a couple of adjustment on my Tx and in the esc manual.Looks like my ep car brake like in ABS mode gradually slow down(its the case in EP car brake).And what spur and pinion gear can I use to make my car go faster(presently I am using the stock gearing spur 58T and pinion 19T)What fastest gear can my TB02 handle.Any recondmendation?What changes should I make for the gearing?What upgrade to look at TB02?
Thanks GUYS....

Stock motors have as good as no brakes! Whatever adjustments you make will not improve braking.
Increasing the pinion size will make your car go faster, but with poorer acceleration.
Also, capacitors must be soldered to the battery-wires, not the motor wires!
