Thumbs up Sakura Zero S - Setup Thoughts & Gearing

Hey all! I'm new to the forums so please go easy on me

I'm currently in the process of building a 1/10 RC car & would like some input on my current setup as I will be using it for tarmac high speed runs. Please also help me on what gearing I should run for top speed & efficiency. Factory spur is 48P / 80T.

My current setup consists of..
* 3Racing Sakura Zero S Touring Car
* Speed Passion Reventon Pro (2S 140A)
* Speed Passion 5.5R v3 (Sensored)
* 2x 7.4v 5500MAH 35C / 60C Burst (Hard Case)
* Power HD 1207TG Servo (Digital)
* Yeah Racing Twin Fan Motor Heatsink
* Kawada Pinion (48P/26T)
* Yeah Racing Tornado Fan (ECU)
* 4x Antenna Tubes

Hop-up's consist of.. (Genuine 3Racing Parts)
* Belt Tension Post
* 50mm Aluminium Oil Damper Set
* Chassis Downstops Protection Plate
* Front One Way v2.0
* 2x 46mm Steel Universal Shafts (Pair)
* Front / Rear Stabilizers & Mount Set
* 4x 4mm Wheel Adapters

All up it set me back $498.87 AUD inc postage & handling.

I will also be using my existing Spektrum DX3S w/ telemetry receiver.

Thank you all for looking & many thanks in advance for all your help!
