Low gearing = High Number
Vice Versa with high gearing
The higher the number the taller the gears and the quicker you will accelerate.
The lower number the shorter the gear and the slower you will accelerate, but you will be at a higher speed before you redline. It's all about finding the balance between how much power you have and how fast you want to accelerate. If you have a ton of power and really low gearing you will blast through the gears and reach top speed very quickly.
