Default TC: FDR for 17.5 non-boost

Quick question: First time running unboosted 17.5 in touring car on a medium sized carpet track with rubber tires. What FDR should I start with?

Thanks!

You'll need to post what motor you are using to get an good answer !!! But without any info I'll throw out a guess for a starting point !!! Try 4.0 and check your temperature EVERY minute for a 6 minute run. If the temp is over 170 you should adjust so you will not ruin your motor. High temperature does not mean you have found the optimal gearing for your particular track layout !!!
goodluck

It's a Speed Passion Feigao motor- about 3 years old. I'll probably start with a 4.5 and work my way down from there.

Update: Hmmm, well, it looks like the biggest gears I've got put me at 4.75. So, hopefully that's not too slow, but it's only a club race, so I'll survive.
