Author Topic: Gear Help - Jr Honda Tampa  (Read 6027 times)

Hey Tampa members from an Indiana guy: 

We are going to be running at a 1/10 of a mile track here in Indiana and just wanted to see what you all run there for Jr. Honda as I figure it should be very similar.

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks,
Triple Crown Champion

Not sure how much help this will be, but here goes:

We don't race Junior Honda in Tampa yet, but we did have a practice with the blue plate for Junior Honda for an hour on Sunday with a couple others that are moving up later this year.  We run #35 chain and had a 58 engine and 37 axle gear (3.83 gear ratio) for the practice and we ran about 4600rpms with that gearing on the car.  The car was handling very nicely and our driver was pretty smooth, but lap times weren't where they need to be to be competitive yet (only our second blue plate practice).  I know the RPMs aren't exactly where we want them either.

Again, we aren't a current Junior Honda team, but I am not sure if many of the Junior Honda teams currently in Tampa check this forum, so maybe this will help get you started out.
