If your problem is the motor not being big enough to move the axis then going 1:1 will make it worse as you will be reducing the torque. Afraid I cant really say what you would need as each machine will be different as it depends on weight, friction etc.
 To be sure it is still not a motor or drive or computer issue you should really swap over components one at a time to make sure the problem axis is always the same.

some times I think the problem comes from gecko drives. all gecko drives that I have are set to 11 o'clock. could I set them for more than 11 o'clock to have more current? if yes, do you think it will resolve a little bit the problem?

thanks
