Thanks,
It can depend on the club you are racing with and whether or not they are running someone else's rules.

Our club runs 1040g and the ETS series in europe is 1010g.

I set up mine yesterday based on an old post in this thread that suggested a 2.75 FDR. I had a 84T spur so went with a 29T pinion to start and have 30, 31 to try as well. Havenít run it yet.

A 2.7-2.9 range has worked well for me at seatac. I last ran my TS 21.5 with a 32:88 @ ~52deg timming according to the can. The ready 21.5 i used before worked best around 40deg timing with ~ 2.9-3.0 ratio. I ran a 25.5 more often that anything else there for the easier car control geared in a 2.5 to 2.6 window.

I get that, Itís what Iíve been running, But! Here outdoor everyone seems to be 21.5, Iím quicker in the infield, really depends on track layout, long straights etcÖ I get gapped terribly. Sooo! As they say, when in Rome!

We race on different outdoor track all over Florida. some big some small - all with the motor that is supposed to run in the class (25.5) The Nationals track and a very large indoor carpet track ( both with long straights). But then your on the left coast and ya'll can do what you want.

Yah know, Iíve watched your posts over the years, The one thing Iíve taken away from it all is you donít seem to be able to see anyones point of view if it doesnít coincide with yours, the funny thing is, As far as left or right side of the country, if you notice, all the smart people live out west, we have all the technology based out West, All the government that has ruined our Country live East.

So You all do what you want,as always happens anyway,
