Title: Mini Stock Gear Setup for Sunset Speedway
Post by: Steviebird31 on December 19, 2013, 12:29:58 PM
Hello Everyone,
I am a new driver this year aka (Rookie) coming to race a Sunset Speedway.

I have purchased a 93 Mustang, was raced last year at Barrie Raceway.
Rani Sequin Car # 3 Red Mustang.
Looking for some setup help before opening practise days.

Whats the right gear ratio for sunset?
The car presently has 345 rear end , standard Tran. What Gear should I have?
I was told you run the races in in second gear?
What should my max rpms be at the end of the front and back straights?
Also what tire Psi should I start with as a baseline.

Can't wait to get on track!!!

Your rear gear depends on what transmission you have. Is it a 4speed or a 5speed manual?

I ran a set of 3.27 and it put me in the 7200+ RPM range in second gear.  A set of 3.08 would be more ideal.
