Default Spur Gear Question

less teeth = more torque

more teeth = higher RPMs

correct?

nope, you got it backwards. The less teeth on a spur the lower the gear ratio so you will have more top speed, the more teeth the higher the ratio so you will have less top speed. Just remember that spur devided by the pinion multiplied by the transmission ratio is your overall ratio.
