Other than the start, what speeds are driven in an EMod prepared car on a Solo course? Generally what's the slowest one would expect to drive? What's the fastest? What's the average?
In other words, how do you gear an EMod car for Solo?
It depends I suppose, my car will go zero to 85 in 3rd gear. EM torque is so cool, and I'm too lazy for shifting. I would aim for gearing that works up to 80 and still gives you some pull out of a 25 to35mph turn.
I generally run my CM car in 2nd and sometimes 3rd. The low end of my 2nd is around 38mph(80% of max power). Since most EM cars make up for less than excellent suspension(CM) with lots of power, you will probably need to slow to around 30mph. To really figure out the gearing you would need a dyno run for your car(I have no idea what motor we are talking about here). Let us know what you figure out.
70 mph is a very fast autocross in any class.
+1 Launch in high gear which maxes out at 82mph
Not to quibble but top speed is 78 mph. We have plenty of low speed torque to pull out of most autocross turns nicely.
