    Hey if you racing on 660ft hard pack snow, when your tuning should you bring the belt all the way to top of your primary. An also when gearing for snow should you always over gear To make up for spinning ? Thanks

    You will lose some gear if you spin so yes your thought Is correct.

    if you gear tall in a short distance, you may never get the belt to the top. i would'nt worry to much about getting the belt to the top in that type of racing

    i wouldn't gear up.  maybe down a tooth.  you don't see cars putting big gears in.  with the shorter gear it may spin alittle easier but won't spin the whole length of the track.  also don't put a big start helix in it to try and stop the pull down of the rpms when it hooks.  go smaller and let it spin without killing the motor

    Drop the belt until it bogs. This is in the secondary. Keep adding shims then go back one. My little secert. :) This is best on grass and ice. Snow sucks for drag racing. More questions
