Default Difference in AX10, Night Crawler, and Comp Crawler final gear ratios?

I have a Night Crawler.
I'm aware that the Losi prodaucts have worm gears, and therefore have alot more gear reduction in the axles.
I think the Night Crawler might also have more gear reduction in the tranny than the Comp Crawler's dig tranny.
Axial, I know nada except I've seen youtubes of 7T pullers making an AX10 fly for short distances and I want to be able to do that pretty bad.
So, how do these stock components compare, gear ratio-wise?
Trying to figure out what motor/pinion combo I need to convert my Losi from crawler to hauler.
FYI-Running a 35T now with stock 20T pinion on 2s, got 3s on the way. Think 3s will get me up in the air?
Thanks.

Its not always about the gearing. Holmes' Pullers are marvels unto themselves and are a big reason such rigs can "jump".

I tried a 7T Cobalt Puller and there was no jumping to be had. Took the motor apart and I guess the comm needs cut, new brushes on the way. I have another thread on it if you want to see the pics. I'd like more opinions on jusy how "bad" the comm is. Comm thread
Wonder how much an improvement I'll see once it's cut and rebrushed?
Gearing does matter though.
Anybody know the ratios I asked about?

Do a search in the LCC and AX-10 sections for "ratio". You'll find you answer.

I have a sidewinder in my lnc and the change to 3s was impressive to say the least that and rovers are two best hop ups money can buy in my opinion

For the losi gear ratios go to their website and download the instructions, toward the end there is a gearing chart. I compaired the lcc to the lnc gearing and the lnc is considerabley lower.
