WOW!!! At Mini Indy I don't know but I must have been way off with the gear when we were there last!!! But the last race we ran was the state race and we finished 2nd but we took the lead with one to go and got a yellow so had to go back to 2nd and that's where we finished in Jr. Honda but our gears were why different though!!! Hear I thought it was because of the female driver I couldn't get things right so I guess that makes since.

Melmo, My driver is a girl also(Ashton Thompson)  so your driver was not the problem!!:) This was last year, The speeds have went way up since the last time you ran there.  Hopefully, we will be running together there again.  See you at the Brickyard.

FYI, we tested at Mini-Indy for three days, 8 hours a day. Junior Honda laps were around 6.754 and stocker was 6.132. We used every tire combo and gearing before we found the right one. The first few days will be fun to watch. Some say the 3 mil tire doesn't work, you will be surprised just what it will do if your car is set right for the tire. The gear selections depends on your on power train. Other suggestions could really hurt you if you aren't careful in what you go with.
