    im in a stock gze. i use 2nd gear around archerfield all the way. for those that dont know archy youtube it. its a tight go kart track. i will almost hit limiter around some of it and in the hairpins the revs will drop to 1200 but it will still spin the wheels at this rpm.
    at qr i use 3rd. i want to try 4th around turn 2 next time i go out tho. i may also drop back to second coming into turn 5-6 but only briefly.

    please, please, please do not use 1st gear around archy everyone...

    ^^^ siff you dont use 3rd for the hairpin if 3rd skids the esses, for me again at mallala, the esses are 2nd, turn 1 3rd and turn 2 2nd again, but it usually revs to high around it, but 3rd dies out, unless i go quick then i end up in the dirt

    I used 2nd for the first half of archerfield then back to first for the second half. That was in a chopped and locked 4ac ae71.

    I never bothered to try any other tracks

    3rd gear + 4ac + wet = feels like your a drift champion and its fast on the street.
