Default Size Matters

The default is to go with the smaller diameter gear set, if only for less inertia. Smaller diameter gears will also have slightly less contact with each other, so friction will be less. The differences will be small, but they will be there. Smaller gears will also take up less space, which is an issue from time to time. As long as the ratio is the same, the output torque will be the same.
