Formula 1600 gearing for Mission
Jul 11th, 2019 at 5:03am
 
Hello, thinking about making the trip out to Mission for season final on Oct.12/13. Home track is Gimli (GMP). Any gear selection recommendations for my 85 VanDieman?

I'll send you my gearing; RF82.
There are a couple of variations, do you have 9/31 or 10/31 final drive?

   My 85 Van Dieman has 9:31. Running either American Racer slicks or Avon Vintage tires. Both are officially listed at 22.3" tall.
   I found a thread on Apexspeed that said
17:34 or      16:31
20:32 or      18:28
22:30 or      20:27
23:28 or      19:24
   Actually lower gears than my home track of Gimli (GMP). (Or the recommendations on Apexspeed were for a 10:31)
   Glad to have your input.
