Default Clutch Bell/Spur Gear?

I have been working on a RC10gt. I have been buying a few piece to put together a car that was not taken care of. My questions is about what Teeth clutch bell and spur gear I should get? I want this car to be fast and I know that this could play a part in it. Please help me with this.

Stock gearing on the RC10GT is 15/66. That is a good starting point, I have geared mine very high to get it to go fast. Remember the more you gear for speed on the top end you will loose on the bottom. The loss on the bottom end is more noticeable then what you gain on the top.

I found that the motor made the biggest difference. If you want to go fast get a motor that can reach high RPM's, but you also need a motor that has the horsepower to pull those RPM's.

I have run the Nova Rossi CX12, MT12 and the Sirio .12 and they will get an RC10GT up to a good clip with stock gearing. If you want more go up 18 teeth on the clutch bell and down to 60t on the spur. Any more then that and you have to do some modifying to get the gears to mesh properly.
