At my local track Im geared at 41/42/88 with a 1.75" rear tire track size (95 X 45) I plan to get a 17.5 how may more teeth should I add to the pinion.

You'll want to be somewhere around a 95mm rollout. With 44mm tires and 76 tooth spur gear I think guys at my track were running in the mid 50's for pinions. There is a thread on here about 17.5 gearing you can also check the 1/12th threrad. There are lot of guys there that will help
