Paul,

At the Mid-Atlantic rules meeting we voted on going to the national usra rules. Can you recommend a gt-1 body.

Also we used to use a wedge body with our challengers, now how far off will our gearing be with the gt-1 bodies? Do you think I will need to gear the car dead so as not to tip coming off the corners?

thanks
bobby

The Parma 1044,1045 and JK Lola Judd are all good. Parma is coming out with a MG GT-1 body that looks great but I do not know how it handles yet.

Last year at the nats we ran 8-36,37,38 with 45-50 degree arms in Kelly cans with mura mags. If the power is very low I would try a 9-38. If you were to use a Proslot can with the same timing you might be able to run 9-38 on high power. I think you should be able to run a kelly can and mura mags with timing 35-38 with a 9-38 on high power.

Paul,

Thanks for the advise. I'll keep an eye out for the new body for gt-1.
