Default Kyosho gt brushless gearing help

Hey guys needs some quick help here. I bought a kyosho inferno ve race spec that i turned into an on road gt. Well the gearing from the off road inferno is annoyingly slow what gearing do you recommend to get some decent speed out of this thing? It does have the orion 2200kv brushless motor in it and as if right now im running 5000mah 3 cells in it. So what pinion and spur would you recommend? And eventually which batteries should get for it? Please be serious dont need to play any games. Thanks

My gt2 ve comes in tomorrow so I let you know , not sure if it comes stock with same gearing as the buggy Ve . I think its a 2000KV motor not 2200 . also if you got a 4S battery should go alot faster then 3S . The orion esc is 4S capable , i think the gt2 comes with a 18t pinion but im not 100% will no within next 24 hrs . I ordered some 18,19,20t pinions just to test it out so well see if its not fast enough im gonna throw my mamba 2650 system and should be fast nuff

after checking mine that just came in , it came stock with a 18t pinion and 46t spur . so you gonna need to gear up atleast 20t pinion if you want more speed and the motor is 2000kv . I tried mine out the box on 3s and it seems pretty slow

Thanks guys for your help. Last night I did order a 20 tooth pinion so will see what happens eventually will end up getting a 4s battery and you're right its a 2000 my mistake. Thanks again though I appreciate the help
