I have a couple questions about rpm's. At what point on the track should the car hit its maximum rpms? And what is the best way to keep the rpms up through the corners. The car we run runs 6000-6100 rpms(stock chevy 350) what should the rpms be through the corners?

You need to have a good power curve as in the power must start coming on exiting the corner with your max rpm at the end of the straight (for example your rev limiter hits as you hit the brake).

The best way to keep rpm's up in the corners is to have a good handling car.
