Here's mine from a while back. It's on a Tamiya TB-02, which is a bit narrower in the first place I believe. Looking back at these pics makes me wish the class had caught on out here! I tried my best.

Hobbyplex Enduro coming I believe in early Feb. 2010 was a six hour and 2011 will be 6 or 8 hours. Three classes... open, TA, Mini all running together.

http://www.hobbyplexraceway.com/onroad.html then choose the 2010 enduro for results.

You're close but you forgot something. The internal drive ratio is essential to know before you can figure final drive ratio. On a Sprint 2 I believe internal is 2.13. Spur gear tooth number Divided by pinion gear tooth then multiply by internal ratio. IE: a 120t spur/32t pinion= 3.75. 3.75x2.13 internal = 7.9875 final.

Hope that helps.

No, you should use the 0mm offsets up front otherwise you may have issues the the tires rubbing the fenders while turning. Even with the 26mm wide 0mm offset tires/wheels up front, the tires will be quite close to the fenders with the bodies slammed down low.
