Re: 1.8 8v whats hot? (smith41)

you might need to provide more info---
track size, banking, tires used, etc.
at evergreen speedway in monroe, most vw minis run 74ish (circumference) tires. 3/8ths mile track, ~8 degrees of banking.
with the right set up and driver, a 19.5 second lap is cruising. RPMs peak at about 7800-8200, where vw's make power (for oval track). 10:1 comp. with stock rods and cranks.
search on the 'net for gear ratios, you should find a formula that you can figure out what gearing you will need.
