I have a few PS FK motors if you would like to try one on Sat will put a 10 on one might try a 27 at first on our low power they have awesome brakes I ran it a few laps in a CA-am car 4.2 fast lap at 9/28 could easy go 10/26 

 

Jason

thanks, I got it geared at 10/27 with 0.770 tires. we will see how it runs!

I like the balance of speed vs handling with this class of car. I'm sure that to go faster, we will be trimming the car out (less aero, harder tires, lighter chassis).

the extra aero, IMO make the car more racy. I'm all in with this class. I've got multiple chassis being made right now, a new FET2, Noose bodies... getting ready for the Brawl

Hope to make there this week-end. Like to see one of these Can-Am+'s just for the heck of it. Its been a while for me, so, kind of want to see what's shakin'. Want to talk to Bryan about this and that and hope to see my ol' buddy Terry also. And a bunch of others too. Gary, you going to be there?

Having had a fair bit of experience with these before I dropped the idea.........here's my take.

 

How many guys can go 4.0 or less on the BPR King? What?............maybe 2-3?

With CA+ Almost everyone will do so once the formula is figgered out.

Sure................the really fast folks will still be the really fast folks.

But.....its a fair bet that there will be more guys in a lower spread with CA+.

IF that's the goal.....this is a good way to get there.

Remember the Track at Speed Zone is a little more a drivers King than ours just saying stay with working on Harder tires and and no tail added or only an 1/8 in

 

Jason

 

P.S I think we can get them down to a 3.8 on our lower power at BP
