I did hear it was a pretty rough sport, but our football players could kick your rugby players asses j/k

ruggers don't tackle head on like american footballers do. It's still a rough sport though. I played a little in college, but got hurt more in rugby then in NCAA Div III football.

I also played LaCrosse, now that's a man's sport!

I run my stock motor indoors and use 20-22 tooth pinions and a 69 spur gear, outdoors on a medium sized track I use a 28-29pinion, on a larger track I could easily see me using a 34 and my indoor track isn't exactly tiny. With a different stock motor like a P2K2 I'd expect to gear 2 or 3 teeth higher atleast. It varies a huge amount.

Do you have any idea's about gearing for other motors at your track? Do you crash a lot? What make of motor is it?
thanx for the info, it's a reedy T1. I'm trying to get gearing for cleveland

What's the length of the track, and how technical is it? There's no set final drive for a 10 turn.

Hmm, in the UK Ford manage to make pretty good cars. Not the highest quality but they are reasonably reliable and often have the best chassis in the class, pretty much every class apart from big luxury cars and off road. But then you Americans don't know much about cars that handle well

Anyway, here's a cuda that was handling well, but there's a ghost after it

Most Americans wouldn't know a good handling real car even when they sit in one. LOL

I drive a bmw and have track time on it, so that's not me!

That hemi thing is more marketing than fact. Back in the day, it did give better performance, but now it just makes a good looking badge on a truck. My car has 282 hp and 325 ft-lbs of torque and gets 24 mpg.
