Use this site to get a starting gear ratio: http://www.comeseethis.com/gearing/Default.aspx

Then, if your motor comes off the track cool and your track is fairly large, you can increase the pinion size to gain top speed.

That motor should be fine for a 13.5 class.

On the chart you linked above, are the Castle CM motors equivalent to the NeuCastle 1406 series?

Thanks.

comeseethis.com has been upgraded and replaced with www.rcgearhead.com. Now you can submit vehicles, motors, and your own gearing.

The new site averages all the FDRs that are submitted for a specific vehicle and motor (but you can still change it) to come up with the recommended final drive ratio.

I have also added a top-speed calculator. Just make sure you pick a tire, because if you don't, you won't get a value for the top speed!

I hope you like it!
