i'm going to another track sat night, trying out a 1/2 mile medium bank. i normally run a 4/10th mile high bank. i run a 3015lb metric,331 small journal, 1.82 glide in low, with 245/60/15 american racer softs. i'm turning 7200 at my normal track and just wondering wether i should go to 3.23s or 3.08s. the half mile is a fast track where you can run wide open most of the way around. we are running a championship race there next weekend and i'd like to get some practice in this weekend. any suggestions

You didn't mention your total gear,those american racers do they look similar to the g60's?I'm running the g60's now but would like a softer tire for the left front...i don't think anyone pays that close attention
where did you get 'em?

big wide corners stays dry and slick and the sprinters will be there and we have had no rain this week so it'll be drier than normal. it's prob half mile to the inside and the other track is 4/10ths to the outside so there is a noticable diff. the tires look just like the imca spec tires just softer. the roll out is 89 on the talls and 87 on the shorts. we get them here locally i'll put the guys # down when i find it. thanx

guess i won't find out till next week, did not make it through sat night to well. got caught up in a caution on the first lap, went into the pits to have the car checked everything was fine. restarted 20th, passed a couple cars down the front straight ducked low in 1 and 2 too pass another one, someone in front of us locked the brakes for whatever reason 3 of us piled in and my radiator ended up on top of the motor. managed to hold onto 10th in points for my first ever top ten though. did not bend the frame horns or bumper, actually went under the car in front of me and the guy behind me went under me. still have not found my rear bumper. oh well thats racing we have decide on the 3.23 for next week. thanx
