Default mamba 5700kv gearing

i have a schumacher mi3.5 and i got the mamba max pro esc with the 5700kv motor. i just got this motor. i damaged my other one from setting my gearing to high. i previously had a 66t spur gear with a 41t pinion with 32 lipo 20c 5000. that destroyed my motor lol. before i had that set up i was running the same battery with the stock eighty-nine tooth spur gear and a twenty took pinion.

im a speed freak.. so im trying to get as much as i can without having to buy another motor. i set the car up with the stock spur gear but put a 30t pinion on it this time. i havent ran it yet but is this gearing safe??

i checked that rc gearing site but they didnt have any schumacher set ups with the mamba. im shooting for 60 65 mph. how can i gear to reach that safely?

im working with forty-eight pinch spurs and pinions also
