Well I run a 17t with a 55t lathe and it works alright. Certainly not as much torque as alot prefer, but I think it offers better performance just from the wheelspeed. I don't seem to be getting stuck by lack of torque where I run so why not.
I wouldn't gear any higher than where Im at though, just volt up

Thats the key question right there,cell count would be nice to.

I run a 3014 850 kv Crawlmaster with stock gearing on a 3 cell lipo and it's great. More than enough power and almost perfect wheelspeed. I've also run a 30 turn handwound on the 3 cell with stock gearing. Lacks a bit of power but the wheelspeed is perfect. Tires won't last long though

With that motor and stock gearing,your better off volting up to gain wheelspeed. Any taller gear and you'll start to see cogging and bad starts. I run the same thing and have tried 8 cells with stock gearing. Works nice. I tried taller gears and started to see cogging. The taller gear you run,the worse it'll get.

Add a couple 2/3a cells or jump to a 3 cell lipo. I'm VERY happy with mine on the 3 cell. If that don't get it,run a 35t on a 3 cell. Thats very fun
