Maybe Road and Track will chime in for an answer. He loves those questions. I'd go closer to your TWS (Texas World Speedway) gearing as the straights are long.

Did you run out of gear at any point at MSRH when you ran the -2/+1?

I would imagine he is asking in preperation for the upcomming races there. Since there have been none before a lot of people don't have that data and just want to know where to start.

last time I was there someone was running a pizza-plate sprocket on the rear of their F4i, and was barely tapping the rev limiter on the back straight.

Here we go again.....

OK Noobs, buy some sprockets.

It does NOT matter what so and so uses.

It does NOT matter what YOU used last time at TWS (Texas World Speedway) etc.

Make an educated guess and then don't be too much of a lazy sod to try something different. Gearing is too important to listen to other slow folks.

Also, we used to mark our gearing wrong so when guys would look at it to see what we had it would really throw them off. Actually, we still do that sometimes. hehehe

I was going to employ you in sprocket duty on my Katoom, KH, but I hear that you're not gonna make the trip to MSRH. shame.
