Either a Saunders or Mack for BP. There is some variance depending on how hooked the track is.
The new Piero chassis is just being tested. Harder to build, if you're buying a kit.
Jury is out on the motors. A .540 arm is smoother through the corners so you can keep the speed up.
The .518 arms seem to be faster in a straight line. Depends on you driving style I guess.
Usual gearing is 7/42 in 72 pitch gears, but you can tune after you start there.
Body of choice is the Red Fox Audi R-10 for ISRA rules, BP rules, but not USRA Nats this year.

Cant wait for the next race. Ummm when is it again? Hahaha, I was at BPR testing most of the morning. Got some good test in and im understanding the cars better. I was running consistent 4.1s which is almost 7 tenths quicker then i was last time. what gearing do you guys run for falcon LMP? I was 44/13 with 72 pitch gears with .675 rear tires. Seemed like it wrapped out real quick but was very drivable and flat out through some of the corners. Thanks for the help guys im looking forward to racing again. I have a GT12 im gonna do some testing with next week also.
