Default Question On overdriving rear wheels

hey all...new to the forum. i have a quick question on overdriving my rear wheels. my hpi sprint is belt driven with 32T diff case gears and 15T pulleys. I know this is a super nooB question, but if i wanted to overdrive my rear, would I go up or down teeth on my rear pulley? I understand I would have to go down or up the same amount respectively on my diff in order to keep good belt tension. OR...would it be easier to UNDERDRIVE my front wheels?

If you want to overdrive your rear wheels then go down teeth on your rear pulley or up teeth your centre rear pulley.

Out of curiosity, is there a particular reason why you want to change the overdrive?
