Default Gearing for Slash VXL

Just ordered a new slash and velineon system for it, out of the box gearing for the slash may be too much for a really short back yard track with lots of twisties.

Can anyone recommend a conservative gear ratio that won't heat this thing up too bad? What is everyone else running? I don't really have top speed in mind here as it will probably never see flat out on the track.

The Slash manual has a gear ratio chart of whats possible with the three available spur gears. It comes with the 86T; but you can get yourself the 90T and start with the smallest pinion shown in the chart.
