Optima mid rere gearing question

Post by EOL »

Hi all!
I just finished building my Optima Mid rere and im thinking about using one of my vintage Kyosho LeMans motors. The motor im thinking about using is the Kyosho LeMans 360PT. What gearing should i aim for? The track is carpet with very few jumps and is not a high speed track.

Here is a picture of the Mid.
