It should be here tomorrow and I'm trying to gather as much info before so I'm ready when it shows.
I can't post urls, but if you go to driftmissions website, and click tools, they have a CS ratio calculator that allows you to calculate cs ratio based on your cars gearing setup. Obviously stock will be at 50/50, or 0%.
As far as what is cs ratio, and what 100%, 150%, 180%, and 200% and all those numbers mean, it's quite simple. At 100% cs ratio, it means the rear wheel will rotate once more than the front wheel. So the rear will will turn twice, for every time the front wheel turns one. At 150% the rear will will turn 1.5 times more than the front wheel, and so on. There are many YouTube videos that demonstrate this with tabs of tape on the tires so you can see the difference in rotations.
