Well last guess was best guess. Peter wins it with his 9.7 mph guess. All were pretty far off since this is a new game with different criteria. This is a pretty good running stocker and it was entered in a race this year where it was #4 qualifier as it hit over 11 mph at 13.8 volts.
On this run the speed was 12.15 mph with an ET of 1.0822. It has run over 13 mph on this track.
Next car for the MPH guessing game is a 57 Corvette. It is one of the older G+ style inlines with .250x .430 stock sponge tires, 8/21 gearing. I believe it was called a shifter because it has a 2 gear setup in the rear. The second gear has no way to engage so it has no effect on performance except to slow it down with the additional rotating weight. All else is stock including pickups, brush's, springs. This is a decent running stock car and is quicker than most of its kind.
just a note for clarification. the shifter sets came with special controllers that reversed polarity when shifted and allowed the armature to rotate in opposite direction and engage the other crown gear. both crown gears are set up on a sort of ratchet to allow it to not engage when pinion rotated "backwards". and like a multi speed derailer bike, the large gear is "low" and the small gear is "high". so, may I ask ...... which gear is being driven in present set up? thank you in advance for your kind consideration. al
oops, never mind about the crown gear. you did say 2/21 rear gearing. that is the large one thank you
