    Yes, 13 to 14 /38 gearing seems to be the choice,car weight was between 61 to 66 grams.

    3.1 is fastest after 2 races,this is not a new style fast track but flatter and less banked and radiused.4power taps and light spray glue all keep the speed down but it is smooth as glass!

    Thanks Bill, it sounds like a neat class and I bet that new Gerding King is a hoot to race on.

    WHAT A BEAUTIFUL TRACK!!!. Perfect for this type of wing car. Best bang for your buck, adrenalin rush. So far I have two races on my car and the braid is still fine, the tires still tech and the motor brushes look great. Using current USRA gp 12 chassis rules with no weight limit keeps it simple. these cars are very durable and a blast to drive. Plus the owner, Mark and his facility is 5 star.

    How many blips is that track with those cars? Do you have to drive every lane? Really nice to see wing racing in Northern Ohio.

    Like any track you can use a high downforce body long with a lot of spoiler and soft tires and never have to lift but that is not the fastest way with the spec motors with limited power.the other extreme is to set it up so loose you have to blip for every corner.So car setup determines blips and lane driving. So each lane is somewhat different in where and when you blip and when and where you keep it punched.Stop by there are always loaner cars available.
