    Whats a good place to start with gearing a castle 3800 on 2s?

    Whats a good pinion to start with gearing a castle 3800 on 2s? I will prolly be using around a 52t spur.

    I would think it will depend on how you are going to use it.

    More top end with a 15t pinion and more torque with a larger pinion such as a 16t or 18t.

    wouldn't it be the other way around, larger pinion equaling more top speed, smaller = more torque?
