Cool, stock up on connecting rods for those engines, you're gonna need them more than gears.

Nahhhhhh .... as i told you, my current track is already same straight 230-235 and we dont have any problem on engines life, usually engines you see on GT cars around here are : OS's VZ and XZ, Novarossi's, GO's 5 and 7 ports, OFNAs (usually first engine on RTR people),

Patricio,

Only going on what you said on your new 300' straight track that has you worried about finding 18/22 gears for it. Now you're changing to this?

The Kissimmee track is outragous, fast and fun. If you're seriously gonna copy that layout you're gonna need connecting rods for the season, but its ok, you'll learn too.

Have fun, gotta watch the Giants & Green Bay game!

Take care.

Sorry i mis-explained myself, 18/22 tests is only for THAT track, my usual track is only 235 feet long.

As far as Kissimmee goes, correct me if im wrong but the track is not THAT big right ?, it says 70m x 27m wich is 235 feet x 90 feet right ?, but it seems is high speed ...

1/10 lap times are 17-19 seconds
