Your gearing is just about right. You're at a 7.2 FDR and that's right about where stock motors need to be I believe. [(Spur/Pinion)*1.8= FDR] You're at least in the ball park. Not 2 seconds a lap off. So I don't think lack of speed is the problem. Just practice driving clean lines and staying off the dots and you'll be surprised how quick your lap times fall. More speed isn't usually the answer. Every time you run a car width wide in a corner, that's 1-2 tenths. Go way off line, there's .5 sec. Do that 2-3 times a lap, there's your 1.5-2 seconds. Keep those lines nice and tight and smooth, you'll pick up considerably. Then you can go for more rip.
