4.71, 4.86, depending on where on the track you run, and how sticky the track is.

Just was wondering? I went to Vegas and was sitting at flag stand and it sounded like they were really twisting those motors. What was the normal RPM's they were turning? What is the normal rpm range the I.M.C.A guys are turning on claimer motors? We don't have a claimer right now, but we might next year. Looking to build motor for I.M.C.A claim rules. Any suggestions on a good all around motor and rpm range? Thanks Riff Raff

Brownstone,you missed it.It was Nov.12&13.
Why would anyone come to race with an illegal car? I heard he had shaft rockers and they didn't even bother to pull the gear out.Not too smart on Busby's part.Hero to zero.I was impressed with DeBenedetti.He ran up front with the best(3rd and legal).
