Jim is correct you gear for the slowest part of the track. Where I run, I’m on the chip about 3/4 down the long straight (about halfway down when I’m in the draft.)
Gary, what kind of GPS setup do you use? For a 206 ( a mediocre driver) that would really help.
I met you this spring down at Kershaw with Derek. I’m the guy that bought the Kosmic off of Derek.
I’ve been keeping up with the ZE prototypes on the skip tooth and that was one of the reasons I started looking at the 219 chain with the skip tooth on my 4 strokes. It seemed like a no brained because there is less mass, less friction and the smaller teeth would give slightly smaller increments in ratio changes which would help in getting the most out of the out of an engine with limited HP and RPM.
Does anyone make a master link for 219 chains or do I have to cut and paste the chains together?
I did my first test on my CRG today and I do like the 219 chain over the 35. It felt smoother and I can feel my tired old clone motor start to pull a little quicker. I don’t have a 219 skip tooth yet. I’m trying to decide if I should modify a regular sprocket or just break down and buy one.
But, I like the 219 for all the reasons both of you mentioned. Less mass more links= less friction. The only thing holding me back is finding a 219 chain long enough to put on my daughter Kosmic/lo206.
I am really looking forward to racing down there. I’ll be running a clone on CRG Kalifornia for at least a short time and my daughter will have the 206 on the Kosmic. I also did a CRG IRIS (and welded onthat one too) for another guy in the 206 class. Hopefully, one of us will run good.
Your my kind of guy.
If I was running Daytona or Vegas, I doubt I’d be welding on it. But, I’m a 48 year fat guy in a economy sportman division in Kerswaw SC…I thiink it’ll be ok…
I’ve got an 07 Kosmic with a 206 on right now. You will need to move the seat strut on the right and probably the rear cross member but its well worth it. Our Kosmic out handles anything on the track.
If not sold please send pics to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I might need some help on the shipping but if you’ve got pay pal I’ve got the money.
Where are you located and can you ship if needed?
