      Hi Jack,

      Hopefully someone in your class will chime in.  We have not raced on this track yet (Thunderhill West using the bypass), but I found out that the straightaway is 4/10’s of a mile long.  For comparison, the straightaway on the East track from turn 15 to turn 1 is 6/10’s of a mile long.

      Come on NCK, help this new member out!

      El Presidente has told me, “TaG should be a 4.8 to 5.0 final drive, 125 shifter should be 19-22 or 23.”

      JMO 19/23 might be too tall for this track?

      At the practice day on this layout I heard guys in the Stock Honda class running 18/23 saying it was too much gear.  I ran a 17/22 and it was fine.  I’m 6 ft. and 210 lbs in race gear.

      Last day to register online.  Looks like we are going to have a nice turnout.
