Default Drifting gear ratios

Hi, I just got a new p2k2 motor, can't wait till it arrives. my qution is what would be an apropriate gear ratio (motor pinion) to run for this motor for drifting? MY user guide of the cars (tc3) says 28 teeth ratio = 6.43, towerhobbies says to start at 21 teeth, which is a ratio = 8.57 . but that is for grip, any suggestions on a ratio that is good for drifting and doesn't overload the motor?

for drifting you want to go around the undergearing part but not to much

that is beacuse of tourqe matters
