hmm drag racing? No idea what gearing for your car, though if u gear higher it could go faster, to a certain extent though, where if heat comes into play it could actually be slower. Also, u could try gearing lower, the extra acceleration could help.

Tires wise that will depend on the time of day & track conditions. E.g. using sorex 36 @ 10pm it definitely won't have much traction (at least with a 9t mod motor imho) and get tons of wheelspin. sorex 28 @ 1pm noon won't help either, the tires wears damningly fast and won't have much traction either way.

If it's a track ask around what tires the other ppl are using. Else choose something close to the temperature you're running at.

HTHs....

if I am not mistaken, last I bought a 64 pitch spur gear (112T) it ran me S$8, the pinion it self is around S$9 I think so it won't really cost too much unless u want the whole range

I'm assuming you are still using the stock spur and pinion of 87 and 28 tooth.

You might want to try getting a much smaller pinion - 22 tooth. You will notice a significant improvement in acceleration.

Also, with a 9 turn motor remember to have your comm cut after about 15-20 runs.
