to 6-7 even with the tires being 3mm smaller from my set up.
just keep adjusting droop and guess what it works out better
for gearing.
Cool, how small can you get the tires down to before they are trash though?

i will re measure my tires since it still has one good race day.
but i am hoping i can run the rears to 55mm. If you want to
run the standard pulley try starting at 60mm all around.
i know Chris T. was starting at 59mm.

I havent planned on going to the overdrive pulley set, so I'll try using 58-60mm for starters.

The La Mirada track was fairly low grip, so you'll propably have to go with a softer tire. There was also one bumpy section, so 4mm ride height wont fly well there...

i'll probably try 5mm all around or 5.5 in the rear with softer
springs but will probably only adjust the ride height and try
it during morning practice before changing stuff.

The track picked up a little more traction as the day went on, but still pretty slick. Dont use any sauce on the tires, it's like driving on ice...

Tabushi have you had a chance to adjust your brakes or
something else in the car so that the car has better response
when applying the brakes.

Nitrodude looks like my plans fell through for lamirada because
a lot of the locals are racing at rev. Hope to see you at rev
this week end. Can you believe ive been running on the same
tires for 3weeks now

JWF_franni, I probably wont make it for this weekend, but will almost for sure on the 4th sunday. Yeah, Im used to running on a set of tires for a while, as you know I dont true them so they last. I wanted to ask you also if you use the front hubs that are designed to reduce traction rolling?

Do you know if the MTX3 or MTX2 centaxes will fit the GT4? After running at Rev 2 straight races I realised how much a centax is needed at a high traction track. I guess I learn the hardway.

Thanks,

re: mugen clutch on gt4

it should fit since the latest version of the clutch looks close
to the mugen but not sure if the threading on the mugen
clutch bell and gt4 pinions will mesh. Any way heres is the
picture of the latest GT-4 clutch. part#ze-mtcl

the kawahara ss clutch spring is a bit too hard and the fly weight is too light. you need to fill up the 3 holes with grub screws to make the fly weight heavier.
