Default CRT.5 gearing

I have a CRT.5 with an Os 18tz. I want to run Sc wheels on it to look more like a Sc truck at my track. Why's a good ear ratio for running tires this siZe on it? Does anyone else run Sc wheels on theirs?

only thing you can really do is 20t clutch bell. crt is stupid fast with 18tz and 2.2 buggy tires with less of a contact patch and more side wall your gonna have a issue with wheel spin so gear as high as you can and thats a 20t bell

Why don't you run 2.2 truck tires. More traction and it'll look like a
Hyper10TT

I guess I could. I already have loads of Sc wheels that's why I was wondering. Plus it be fair of me to have less traction and not hookup as well seeing as I will be running with the Sc trucks. With traction they wouldn't be able to keep up
