I can't seem to find the weight specs of it. But considering it's just a transmission and not a transaxle, weight rating shouldn't be all that important. If it was a transaxle that's one thing or if...

With a 60 tooth and the 10, you're at 32mph. With a 54 tooth you'll be at 35mph. Not gaining much in the grand scheme of things. Stick with the 10 and 60 tooth with those 18" tires.
