    Gearing Question

    I am just recently venturing into slot car drag racing. I have bought a Edge car from Parma and a S16d motor. We are running just shy of a 1/8 mile I am thinking it is 23ft. I am trying to figure out my gearing can someone give me some advice on where to start?

    Talk to the guys at Mid-America Raceway in Naperville, IL. they are big into drag racing and will get you in the ball park.

    Every track is different, but the shorter tracks can use lower gears - like one pinion tooth smaller or a bigger crown. The out of the box car is likely ok for 55 ft tracks.
