Default Newb to TC On Road Racing!

I picked up a nice FT TC3 roller for a very good price and I figured this would be a great entry into the novice 17.5 spec class racing. I put in a Novak 17.5 SS setup.

I am trying to figure out the age old question on gearing.

The IGR is 2.5 and the spur/pinion I am running right now is 72/25 or 75/25 I forget. Either way the FDR is not working with our twisty layout and a long straight. The FDR on my current setup is 7.20 or 7.50...I need it in the mid 5's.

Attached is the gear ratio chart from Associated. But I see nothing to gear in the mid 5 range.

Can anyone help a newbie out?

Thanks in advance!!
