Default Gearing

Today was the first time I used sxx ss and x12 13.5 motor. My local track straight is about 20 to 25 meters long, my fdr was 7.61. Feel was set on 4 and boost was on 6. It was really quick, I think the gearing needed to be 8ish.

Any suggestions on the gearing?
Attached is a pic of my local track. The profiles I use on this track are SXX SS, X-12 13.5 with 4dot timing, 3.5.7.2. with an FDR of 8.19 in a TC5. Track temps atm are around 20-28 deg C and after a 5 min race the esc comes off at 45DegC and motor (with LRP heatsink/fan fitted) comes off at around 85DegC. Its got more than enough to keep up with the tekins and I dialed the brakes back to 80% on tranmitter and its still got more than enough. Hope this helps.
