Anyone have a suggestion for where to start on gearing for a 17.5 combo on an original DEX210?

32 to 34 tooth pinion and a 69 or 72 tooth spur gear. I would start with the 32 pinion and then either size spur and work off that.

I run 78/32, but our track is tight. Motor barely gets to 120 degrees.

*Edit: I am running 13.5

Do you guys find on smaller tracks that this car does better with bigger spurs than other cars. I'm running 7.5 on one and 8.5 on another, go between 83 and 87 spurs and feel the 87 drives better. 83 gets a little punchy. Tried 81 and it was out of control. Maybe on larger track would be good.
I am on small-med indoor dirt-clay, med-high bite, technical track.

Absolutely. I don't know the science behind it but the large spur softens the power coming on. like 17.5. Running the smallest spur and the biggest pinion. Picks up low end to counter the low fdr, taking advantage of the 17.5 torque. The opposite hold true for mod. Less torque but more top. End, so the large spur and smaller pinion softens the low while increasing the high. I hope that made sense. I know what I'm trying to say.

So I'm not crazy. I thought I felt that too. I ram out of gears when putting the DEX210V1 together (I use the TD machined spurs) so I had to use the kit 87T. I set up my FDR for about 11 on a 7.5T, the same as my V3. But on the V3 I'm doing it with an 84T spur. The V3 feels like it will boil the rear tiresuch faster, to the point I turned down the punch on the esc to counter it.

Thanks guys. Phantom that makes total sense.
Alan go with the RDRP or Schumacher spurs, they are just as good, machined, but cheaper.
Also, the McKune slipper pads are awesome.

Is this what you're talking about?

In the 80's and early 90's, when I was most active in racing, I'd often run a much larger spur and hence pinion than other people. I know that car and track design was different back then but this had the effect of moving the motor a little bit as well as having a bit of a flywheel effect. I raced in the stock class which was 27 turn brushed motors. It was a snails pace by modern standards. Things were just a little smoother to me and I liked the way it drove. What I like to do today is find a ratio that seems to work well and then try different combinations of it based on different spur sizes. Then I'll use the one I like the best. I don't typically care what anyone or everyone else runs. I don't have a recommendation for the 210. I used to have an 8.5T in the car but haven't even run the thing in nearly a year. I'm going to put a 17.5 in it so I'll have to start from scratch. On my dirt oval cars, which are direct drive, I include a 96t spur with all cars. I have a team driver in New York that can't get his head around not running what everyone else does. He tries to use a much smaller spur like the others do and that moves the motor too close to the suspension arms. I've told him repeatedly to run the kit spur and gear it accordingly and he keeps saying that he can't hit his ratio. It's a fraction of a percent off and would have zero impact but he'd probably have a better result. Some people just can't be taught.

So true Fred. You can lead a horse to water ....

People try things out of the ordinary and it works but they won't believe it because it's not on some pros sheet.

I'll always have my Durango DEST and DEX210. I bought them from a friend
that owned a hobby shop, it was my memory of him being open. He closed 2 years ago,
and another guy reopened the place thankfully. I just feel something is missing without him being there.
Nothing wrong with the New guy running the place hes a Dirt Oval guy thou and the original owner was strickly offroad.
