Default C027 Gearing

What is a good STOCK 2wd buggy final gear ratio for a 27t motor.

I know 17.5t brushless is 6.
I know 13.5t brushless is 7.

But what is it for a 27t, I have heard 8.5 (22/78 * 2.43).

Locally, I usually ran around 9-10 overall (20-21:84 w/ 2.43 FDR)...

17.5 is actually closer to 5:00:1 in a 2wd buggy. I know that Novak has that on the website, but I know what the top guys were running at the ROAR nats. 17.5s owned that race.

EDIT: Nevermind, don't know from buggies - but my T4 I ran 87/17 or 18, which seems to be perfect.

Usually in the 9.5 FDR is about right for a buggy.
