Someone a few posts back told me a good starting point is 4 for the fdr. I need to know what a good starting point is for 17.5 blinky

The guys at my track told me 3.52 for 17.5 blinky . Guessing that will change depending on the track but would think it is a good starting point .

Is your track small,medium, or large size? And does it have a long straightaway? Oh and is it carpet or asphault? Sorry for all the questions.

FDR is virtually identical for blinky 17.5 and VTA at Leisure.

3.5ish is safe to start for either class... drivetrain, driving style, and motor temp will dictate how much lower you can go.

On a smaller track, FDR for either class may end up between 3.5 and 4ish to start.

I run my 17.5 Tekin RS Pro "blinky" 48pitch 39t / 72t around 3.9 fdr.
Hope that helps.

I run a 4.0 in 17.5 blinky. Most at my track gear a little higher but my motor seems to be happiest around a 4.0. This is on a medium sized indoor track. On an outdoor track the gearing will be a bit different. Either way a 4.0 should be a very safe starting point assuming nothing is bound up in your car.
