Gearing changes by track.
At our clubl track I was running 96/45, 4.27fdr, temps 150F
This weekend at out of town WCICS race, I had to gear up 96/47, 4.08fdr, 162F and put in lots more physical timing.
The race this weekend the track was bigger, with high speed chicanes and less braking than our club track.
I'll be glad to get my SXX's back!
Anyone with the new board, how are the brakes?
I notice when I run lower FDR's the brakes get very light and soft in blinky 17.5 TC.
I can't run a smaller spur than 64p 96 so once into 45+ pinions the brakes get less and less.
I've swapped out everything to see if it's electronic, but it seems to be a low FDR issue in my old TC5R.
