thanks - i have it geared with wide ratio M22 auto gearset (2.54 1st) and 4.56 - so it certainly has the benefit of torque multiplication for sure. and it has a 10# flywheel.
I like it idling at 1000 rpm, which is probably a tad low - but rollig out of a stop at 12-1400 is easier than the 30/30 was with 11 to 1. (same gears)
honestly, i can't make full use of this cars power - if you nail the throttle, the tires comes loose at any speed above 3000 rpm. The last time I had it out, i thought i'd wind it up on a freeway entrance ramp.... i eased into it in 1st, and then when it hit 5500 in 2nd, it started floating out on me....
needs more rubber
