I ran the RMVR race at Pueblo the weekend of June 4th and 5th. Was first
event since drivers school in March at Second Creek Raceway.  Had a real
hoot of fun.

I bought a TR-4A in December of last year and did find out a few things at
Pueblo.  Pueblo is a bunch faster than Second Creek.  I has assumed car had
4.1:1 gears.  Talking to other racers w/TR-4 about shift points in comparing
to mine, came up with the fact that I have 4.55:1 and the OD doesn't work
consistently.  Lack of power on not very radical engine has power over with
at 5000 RPM.  Will go to 5500 in some sections but no power.

Even when OD worked the car will not pull any more revs on the long straight
than w/o OD.  SO the next step is to get OD working and getting engine to
make power to at least 6000.  Probably the better solution than getting
4.1:1 gears.  Also want to balance increased power w/longevity.  God help
me, may have to spend more money!

Anyway I guess I'm on the slippery slope!  More fun than I ever imagined.
