i ran a 6.50 in my hobby stock. if was to guess i would lean more towards a 6.00 or a 6.20, reason being your dealling with a lighter car and it wont take as much gear to get it off the corner as i did my hobby stock. best thing to do would be to borrow a gear and see how it works brfore buying one. gary, are you the 16f that pitted next to the orange 11 hobby stock?

good idea gould.... just depends on whats in the motor. we found that at webster it takes just about the same gear as a hobby stock in the b mods

all depends on the motor, a high twisting motor would need a 6.00 at boone. Most guys run a 5.67 there.

They get a real good count of cars at webster. Yes you can run sliders up at webster, basically a 2 link is the only suspention rule...

in our b-mods we can run whatever we want for rear suspension with sliders.....or whatever we want period!! the most common setup at Blackbird Bend speeedway is 350 60 over, tilton triple disc, or stock disc setup, with a 6.00 gear... and our track is 5/16th's slightly banked and we have hit 7500 rpm's we can run 4 wide in the a feature.
