Don't think a flat floor would go down too well, I need to replicate the original tank bottom as the standard rear end is a bit of a parachute without it :roll:

Looking like final drive is the issue, just need to come up with a solution now :?

Oh yeah, 2nd in class D, first being the overall winner in the TR5

With my current 3.54 I'd be doing 156@7000 in 5th and 136@7000 in 4th, which is pretty much spot on what it was doing...

So a 4.1 would be doing 135@7000 in 5th, which wouldn't be enough!!??

Hope there's something in between the two :?

Hi Paul,

It looks like theres a 3.77 ratio available...

I didn't realise you had the back of the body open, that definitly needs to be panelled in to reduce drag!
