Default Clutch Bell Question

A question for those of you running .28's in your Truggy. Do you prefer a 13 or 14 tooth clutch bell, or do you switch back and forth depending on the track layout?

i switch between 12,13,14 tooth depending on track layout...12 works great on a small track...

I usually start with a 13 tooth for a base setup. But for a .28 i think going to a 12 tooth would result in a lot of wheelspin. I would consider a 14 tooth if the track is really huge.
