Beyond that, um, going to be a quest for power.... I guess I can go old school and use the truck battery, set up the iron at the tech table if needed. The cooler is ice powered so no worries, good times

Default Spec GT

Spec GT Guys....

There has been lots of talk about the gearing in Spec GT. I have talked with a few racers and John B today.

We have a few options...

1. Stay with 6.8 or above FDR and use handout motors. But when we say 6.8 or above, we don't mean 6.6 because thats the closest you can get. 6.8 or above and thats that.

2. Use the FDR that is used in the TT01 with speed gears. Either 5.72 (55/25) or 6.28 (58/24) depending what gear you use. Handout motors.

3. Unlimited Gearing, own motor.

There are good points and bad points about every option.

My vote would be to use the TT01 gearing. Specifically the 5.72. Every car has its sweet spot and that will give us enough of a range to find it.

1-3, "2" is the happy medium....

I found a chart online and printed it out (for TT01 gearing), sent you a pm link too. I can bring it out to leave on the table. Not sure if I'm making it out tomorrow, having been putting stuff off, but hey I may say "eff it" and go race again

For our track, nobody seems happy with 6.8, and nobody wants to spend all day trying to enforce it. MOst guys are going to find that running in the 5's will get them the speed/temp that works best. Trying to run below 5.39, your going to get heat fade and lack of acceleration anyways.
