Ok
we run a track spec tire
My question is when you run stagger in the tires which tire do you use to measure roll out. We have a 91 on the RR and an 88 on the LR.
Reason we are asking is we moved up in division this year. Last year we ran a smaller tire with a 6.00 gear. This year we don't think its enough with the new tire.

Your stagger will be the differences of the rollouts of both tires. Are you saying you think your not going to have enough gear w/ the larger tires?

yes thats what I was trying to get out.
We have the same gear as last year. 6.00
and with the bigger tires think it might not be enough gear.

yes the car is 85 M/C we ran saturday at a track new to us. So we got there and they put the car on the scales and weighed in at 3400lbs. We went to run their super stock division. Track owner told us to run the street stock. We hit the track for hot laps and driver said car wouldn't go. We have a carb problem. it kept loading up.
So for race we took three laps and came off the track before the super stocks ran us over. Watched our track champ get beat up in the same race so we didn't feel to bad about dropping out. As far as the gears I think we will be ok. Will post again when we can run a full feature.

Driver says the car feels great.
Just need to get some bugs worked out. So we can make some really good laps.
