    more teeth on the pinion , more speed , less torque
    less teeth on the pinion , more torque, less speed

    more teeth on the spur , more torque, less speed
    less teeth on the spur , more speed , less torque


    more turns in motor ,more torque, less rpm, lower amp draw
    less turns in motor ,more rpm , less torque, higher amp draw

    also taller gearing (speed)= more amp draw
    shorter gearing (torque) = (USUALLY) less draw
