Yanni,

that page has no information for a Leopard.

I am going to say 10/76 is a good starting point but Mr. Bailey has the most experience with the Leopard in this area. Maybe he will chime in and give his suggestion.

John,

I emailed Gary & gave him a link to this post. When we get the information I will add the gearing for a Leopard to the page with the base gears for the other classes.

Milton

Tag Sr. will run 11-84 with the track sticky. If it slicks off you can go down as low as a 11-80/81 In a 10 tooth driver a 75/76 will work and as it slicks off or loses grip, you could go as low as a 10/73
Tag Jr. will run a 11- 77/78/79 and a 10 driver with a 70-72 gear
Gear ratio tag sr. is 7.50-7.55
Gear ratio tag jr. is 7.00-7.20

All this is guessing your running 16000 rpm. If its hot in the middle part of the day I would run a 11-83 or a 10-75 for sr and a 11-79 or a 10-72 for jr If you need more help, call me or text me

Great information. I have put a sticky on this thread so it stays at the top of the TAG forums.

Thanks Gary!
