I am trying to get an idea on how to gear the new generation of motors so that we have something to use as a reference point when we travel to new tracks. West Chester is known for being a big track, so this is a great opportunity to try some stuff out. I know most of you will be running 19 Turn or Mod. What I would like is after you are happy with your car, if you could each run 1 practice run with a stock motor. This will be great testing because of the heat. I can't give you an exact gearing to start at, but I would throw 3 teeth more than you usually run on there and try two laps...you want to top out about 3/4 of the straight. I'm guessing a CO27 will be somewhere near 5.6-5.8 range.

I only want you to run a handful of laps. Just enough to say, yes I think this gearing is dead on. If you hit it on three laps...great, test over. If you have access to a Temp gun let me know the temp when you come off the track. Also let me know if you are running fans (which everyone should be LOL)

Guys who are not going to WC can help out too since its pretty much going to be hot everywhere...just give me an idea on the track size when you reply back.

PS anyone running an X motor or something OTHER than a CO27 ??
Well Bob you will have a great chance to beating the new stuff. I'm sure the T2 will get a workout. Hey look out for the pvc!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It does bite.

Bob I think the practice you will get this weekend is replacing front arms and caster blocks and then lastly you will have lots of practice sweating!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the info Tag!

Brian I will be sitting in the AC with my little one...it's her 5th birthday!

Thanks Ryan.

The reason I ask these questions is I look at what they are running down in FL for thier state series. Fairly large tracks. and they are all running anywhere from 5.4-5.8 in 19T
