you would want to have longer gears so you can get the most mph out of each gear, oh course without going over board; you don't want a first gear that can do 80. i would say get gears that would let you run about 40, give or take, in first about65 or 70 in 2nd and about 90 in third. that should give you descent times at the track. take a look at this article about gearing.
