I was wondering about the effects. I'm presuming that if they are longer, we would get better steering on a short tight track, yeah?

Actually, I haven't even measured the differences between the option ones to discover what they might bring to the table.
spot on. more ackerman better initial turn it .

That day with my RTU finchy I was running 17/21 with 60mm tires and it was pulling pretty hard down the straight right??
AMG, that why! we are using 57mm rear to start, its rev out in mid straight with 18/22 thats why I'm searching right gearing.

about the 0.8 module with 22/27 its still shorter then 18/22.

Yeah I agree with tl. The steering gets more agressive, but becomes worse at low speeds and feels more "notchy" or less smooth. On a high grip track the more agressive steering gain is worth it. On a lower grip track the loss of low speed steering can become a liability...........

Start with the kit set-up - it's pretty good actually.
Given that your in Singapore where it's warm/hot , I'd substitute the diff and shock oils. - 7.5K in the diff and 60W in the shocks . . . both of which are dependent on your track/driving style/ preference etc.
. . . . Oh, and maybe a good cooling head for the OS, too.

Sheesh man!! MK was using the maximum gearing on his mugen (similar to 18/22 on V1R) with a JP RS12 S3 to win the NSW titles so I assumed this would be OK. If you are running out of gears then the 24t is a good option

Yes, you would need 27/54 in the 0.8 module to equal 22/44 in the old gears.
. . . and of course we don't have a 54 spur, do we.
Actually, a 28T pinion would give you more options.

What is the length of the straight at Moorebank and Brendale?
The large track we run at is Lilydale. The straight there is 70 meters, I think . . . . and it's downhill, too.

I think lilydale has the longest straight, but moorebank has 65meter plus 10 meter after the sweeper which we are flat stick going through.

I think Brendale is around 65 metre or so. Sheesh man what gearing do you use on the 70 metre straight?!

Usually 17/22 but 17/21 OK depending on tyre size. The split is a bit more than ideal but seems a fair compromise if the engine is flexible enough - the Rody really shines on this track.

Take notes, please - The Vic's are on in January.

The reason I asked is that both Brendale and Moorebank always look really big in photo's - never run at either track, drat.

Tommy, can't you just narrow your eyes for that last 10 metres at Moorebank.

Sorry blixelX, I really don't know. . . . but I'd thought ZAC or Kawahara did one.
Down here some guys seem to have overheating issues with the OS and I figured Singapore heat was probably asking for it.
Talk to some of your local racers with OS's - they should be able to better advise.
