Ritchie,

On my Reedy quad mag I was gearing about a 5.98. Pretty much a 6.0 final drive with a reedy quad mag. You can normally gear the quad mags to the moon and still have awesome punch and top end with no sacrifice in midrange. I didn't want to gear up because I had so much overall power and it had great punch comming out of the tighter stuff. I could have geared up for sure, but there was that thought of the longer runtime as well. Therefore I stayed where I was at. And you saw how fast it was right after a bebuild!

Interal ratio shouldn't have to do with anything on the way it spools up. At least not a noticable amount. The Final Drive Ratio is the most important. All motors are different. Even with the same teardown and setup! Hope that helps ya out dude.
