I think the 3.73s with the 28 inch almost 29 inch tall tire is about perfect for that car. It makes enough low to mid range torque to pull mid 1.5 60's if not better.
4.10 is the perfect ratio with 28.9 tires. They are crossing the stripe at 5745 with the 3.73's. With 4.10's they will be crossing the stripe at 6200 at 130 MPH with a 1:1 trans gear.
