I know most guys are not running a Novak 17.5 ss motor anymore but where is a good starting point for a 155 foot carpet track( finishline in bakersfield) in spec truck?
Thanks Jason

I would not gear by temp with 17.5 spec. That setup just doesnt build a lot of heat. I would instead look at how much the car drops off. If you drop off too much then gear down, if you are too slow up front, gear up. If it falls off too much and is slow up front, work on your setup.

I would start closer to a 5.15 to 5.25. But a lot of it depends on how well the car is working. Main goal is to only fall of 2 to 3 tenths over the course of your run.
