is there a formula for figuring out what gears i would need to do this ?

I know there is a lot of variables in this scenario that figures into the factor

but leave all that out and every lap is the same as the one before

perfect lap every time

You cannot set and compare gearing to lap time directly across the board. You cannot do it because it does not take into consideration all the other variables like hp, type of kart, weight, etc..

I just don't think you could input enough stuff to write down and chart if a gear change would reduce or increase lap times. But experience can at times take everything into the picture and allow you to likely know the answer before you make a change. Notice the "can at times" and "likely to know" part of it, there ain't no real answer I can think of for you.

ok I thought there might be

sure there is someone out there that's got the answer
