Gotta agree, its between the mychron and a tire pressure guage, you can take those 2 things to any track and run good if you know a little about everything else. Without those 2 things, your in left field unless your real good at guessing and have some good luck lol

The reason i said the mychron, is because i ran half this season without a tach and i did ok but wasnt very consistent at all. Since getting a mychron, im now running consistent laps, have a better idea where i need to start out at, and what to do, and can tell by the lap times whether a change iv made helped or hurt.

for sure, ..corner rpm drop = faster lap times.............

We built an inertia dyno and it really gave us a tuning edge. especially with jetting and gearing.

Man these are the things i was wanting to hear hope it keeps going . Only one vote for a tuneing dyno ,no flow bench yet . So i assume were all content (For the most part ) with our horse power?? So the real consistent speed is in set up and tires??? Just thought provokeing not argumentative .
So i have my gauge and a case of new tires whats next . Were dirt oval of course occasional asphalt .
