We need a little more data - 50x30 - feet or meters? Tight layout or open? The more info you could provide about the layout, the better suggestions we'd be able to provide in return.

What is the motor setup. Torque or rpm. What rotor do you have. And in what car class, tc? Pan cars?

Goots, come on. Read the guy's post at least. It's a touring car and he has both the broad powerband rotor (purple) and the high torque rotor (turquoise)

he doesn't say whether its the RPM or torque stator though. That will make a slight difference.

I'm going to guess it's in feet, because that would be an enormous track if it was in meters.
50'x30' would be a small track with not much of a straight, so you don't need or want to have too low of an fdr, unless that track has a bunch of very wide, flowing turns, but that seems doubtful.

I race a lot of 17.5 blinky and mod and I used to race 13.5 boosted, but I have not raced 13.5 blinky before, so I'll defer to others for FDR suggestions, but my educated guess would be around 4.5 and to use the turquoise rotor.

If it's a 50' by 30' track, I'd try a 4.7 FDR to start, timing at 50 degrees using the turquoise rotor. Should be a safe starting point regardless of the stator being used. On a track that small, I wouldn't consider using the purple (broadband) rotor, especially in a TC.

Try 4.3 gearing, 50 degrees of timing to start. Stick with the turquoise rotor.
