The best way to find out, is ask the fast guys at your track and then adjust the gearing 3-4 teeth up and down. Gear based on laptime ....
True, but a lot of times they will tell you their rollout.
This thread is just showing people how to convert that to get the pinion you need.
It's also showing them how to deal with different tire size since with foam, it changes throughout the race day.
More informative than actually trying to find out how to gear for your track.
I think guys just want to know how to tackle the problem from different angles when they do ask.
After a while you won't need to ask, you'll just know and grow in the hobby.
I think that is what we are trying to accomplish with this thread.
