I followed a thread like this on a KFX board and thought it would be interesting to see the DS guys' experience. Do you guys start out in 1st or 2nd gear?

I went down to a 14 tooth front sprocket (didn't even realize I was running a 15) and we'll see if I can get it going in 2nd. Might pick up a 13 as well just for fun.

OH YEAH!!!! 3rd gear starts for me, from here on out. Tried it 5 times in a field similar to our starting area. Dead engine to WOT in 3rd works like a champ.
