Back when I was a young teen I had a Lunchbox and found if you took off the motor mount adaptor and put a conventional 19t pinion, you would get all the speed you could possibly use from a lunchbox. P.S. I flipped my wheelie bar upside down and you keep some on throttle steering.

I used to do that too back in the late 80's early 90's with modified brush motors. Use to haul ass! Tons of fun. I want to try brushless.

A few years ago I ran a castle 5700 with stock pinion.
