Default four stroke gearing

Does anyone have any knowledge or information on what ratio /gearing that is optimal for fitting a four stroke in a 1/8 road car?

4 stroke nitro or petrol? both have alot more torque than a 2 stroke nitro engine. just work out the max RPM, and decide what you want your top speed to be. don't worry about stalling it, you wont

p.s i assume this is a 4 stroke made for a car? because the aeroplane ones don't have very many cooling fins and would overheat in a car.

maybe a 370 motor pumping water round the engine head... could be done, but it would affect the runtime of the receiver pack alot.
