Can anyone help me with the selection of gear ratio for running the Ice Bowl? I'll most likely run a 383 and want to turn 7300 or so on IMCA American Racers.

Thanks,
Greggie

Thanks, racer4. I'm usually pretty careful about that getting away-from-you thing. It sounds as if TST is about the same as Hattiesburg, Ms. Ever been there?

I ran an 5.83 a few years back, not sure of the changes made to the track since I have been back, but it worked fine for us.

You might have run a 5.83, Jammin, but we all know those big HAWG motors you run. LOL. Why, I've heard that when you go down the front chute at Dallas County Speedway, it starts snowing and when you go down the back chute the snow moves south of the equator. HA HA

What are you trying to say, Jammin? Are you like me and all you hear when you're on the track is a big "sucking" noise? LOL

I think of it like more of a black hole.....the track is just the rings around the hole, waiting for you to pull into the infield with a broken car so it can pull money out of your pockets.....lol....but whats bad is I know this and do it anyway. The fever exists in all of us I think.

Jammin, I'd like to catch up to you, also, if you go. Keep us posted and if you go, let me know how to identify you.
