Prolly not, next week on the 7th, we'll be holding our club series #5. This should be an exiting sunday race as there'll be one new serpent racer joining us.

Serpents are at #1 and #2 positions currently followed closely by r40 at #3.

5 port is more powerfull at bottom and 3 port is more linear I guess. So in SUBWAY I use std 1st gear and using 57/21 for 2nd gear. If Im using RR engine, stock 2nd ratio is enough.

What methods of measurement do you use to gear up or gear down ? In EP, I always listen to the motor peak rpm as an indicator, when it peaks at 3/4th of the longest straight, it should be right on the spot.

In GP, things seem to be a bit more complicated since there are 1st and 2nd gears. I always ask another serpent racer to go side by side with mine on the straight to see of I need to change gear ratio. But I dont think that's the best way.

Almost the same methode but in smal track like Subway I hardly ever hear my engine peaks, so i use shortest possible except with RR engine. It easily peaks up.
In JITC, depends on your driving style. How you take the sweeper after backstraight. If you hold (around3/4) the throttle when taking that sweeper, than set it right on the end spot.
If you let off completely, steer it and lift throttle again you need to peaks the engine sooner.
Yes it is not black and white, just use 23/56 combo while using stock engine (especially RR)

Interesting,
Paulo M was using 22/56 2nd gear with the new Picco-Mega engine and hit 101km/h in Brazil. His engine must be screaming like a raped monkey.

The answer is simple. The overhead cost is simply too high. Transportation and handling cost etc. You must remember also that some websites already add VAT which is not applicable if the goods go outside of EU. Something like 19% is applicable in Holland.
