We have someone at track we go to once in while that is in the "green plate " class that turns around 6200 rpms and is a straight away faster than everyone else in the class. what could be going with this?
A green plate can turn 6200 but our stuff starts to drop considerably after 5500, we are on a small pipe as well, not much experience with big pipe. Have they pulled the plate/carb and confirmed its legal?
My target RPM is 6200 on a green plate big pipe, biggest driver I can get away with, Usually 1 tooth above what the adult classes are running. SO if their on a 13 were probably on a 14, Carries more speed into the corner and with a 100lb weight advantage over say the 350# class we scrub off less speed, Thats how we can normally get away with going 1 bigger. Now if it seems like it is going to be a wreck fest with multiple cautions ill drop a tooth just to assist on the restarts...... Very few times has it worked in my advantage though lol
80% of tracks Green plate will be 2 driver sizes bigger than adult, Blue plate is 1 bigger, purple is on the fence some only 1 some 2, Green most always 2 some 3 bigger. This is when the driver is maximizing momentum not a lot of on and off the throttle.
