Default gearing for t5r with 3.5 bl ?

I have a tc5r I just got from a freind and I'm putting a 3.5 bl in it for some fun speed runs and I need to know about gearing. I read that 64p gear were allittle smoother and more contact area and it's what came on it as far as a spur goes so I picked up some pinions for it and wanted to get some spurs for it next. I bought a 22 t thru 26 t 64p pinions and the car had a 84 tooth spur but when I went to mount the motor I relized that they wont touch even slid over all the way so I either need way bigger pinions or larger spur so since I have a bunch of new spurs I was hoping a range of spurs to get that would work with them. I'm going to end up racing it with a 13.5 bl and just playing around with it with the 3.5 so point me in the right direction if you would. Also what is the gear reduction in the pulleys of a t5r so I can figure out fdr? Thanks for your help.

I did not know AE had come out with the t5, I only heard of a prototype. A 3.5 would be quite a handfull in a 2wd truck.

You will get more answers if you post this in the TC5 thread, but I think 9-10 fdr will get you in the ballpark. It varies depending on track conditions.
