Flat track,tight corners,round,oval?What rpm you looking for?I would start with 12driver and a 65 sproket.One tooth on the driver(clutch)is approx.4 teeth on rear sproket.So if you have a 13driver to get the same approx. ratio run a 69sproket.Both drivers even in the same approx. ratio the kart will accelerate differently.Smaller driver better accleration even with same ratio.This is only my experience.And opinion.I am no expert.humidity,temp. and tire size.Changes the ball game entirely.Unlike cars same gear wont work every time same track sometimes not even same night.Hope this helps!Happy karting!!!!!!!!!!!!
