I ran the Parma 10113 - 1970 'Cuda. It held up great not even a crack in it even after a bunch of wacks and off the track traction rolls.

At the track tonight, I geared my car at about 4.5 with the lipo/21.5. I could do multi 12.5 laps. I added 2 teeth, to be at about 4.3. This instantly put lap times at 12.8-9. The track I raced at is about 100x40, so it is tight, but has a long straight.

Strangely, the car seemed revved out at 4.3. More so than at 4.5.

Somebody showed me a website that had all the chassis listed on a spread sheet and you just punched in your gear numbers and it would give you your FDR . Anyone have the site link ?

Really guys, use the SEARCH feature within this thread. Just about everything you could ask about USVTA racing has been discussed a lot here over the last year. This was discussed 3 or 4 pages back...

There is an Excel spreadsheet specifically made for USVTA that can be found on the USVTA website in the Rules section... here.

Unzip that file in WinZip or 7Zip (open source) and open in Microsoft Excel or download OpenOffice (open source). If you can't get any of those, then you should blow up your computer right now and give up.
