Well, for my track I run a 60T (48P) spur and atm I think I have a 32T or 33T pinion on. However, your gearing should be based on your specific track and different ESCs allow for slightly different gearing too. I'd say go with around 4.5 or 4.6 FDR for starters, and adjust up or down from there. Gearchart.com is a great help for figuring your FDR. For springs, I like blue front and green rears with 30weight oil in mine (indoor carpet). I also have both my front and rear shocks leaning in pretty good (inner most or next closest for the shock tower hole and outer hole on the suspension arm). Rear diff is set pretty loose, and front set medium. I haven't really messed with spools, and one-ways aren't allowed here either.
