I run +7 hex to get the track width to 190mm with foams. The one thing to remember is that you have a spool up front, driving style here becomes critical to keeping entry speed up, if you go in to hard on the steering, you get the front wheels sliding, this will scrub off lots of speed, if your tracks are very tight, and you are still struggling for entry speed, you may find a gear diff up front is going to help you alot there, by letting the front rotate better.
