I know this is probably a day late and dollar short but in all these forums I have yet to really read anything substantial on the use or lack thereof of rear gear ratio options. As all the experts have pointed out, the original Z's were screaming little (maybe not so) road demons that cornered and handled. They were slung low, revved high and had gearing to pull out of corners and accelerate quickly. I love my SS don't get me wrong, and I understand the gas guzzler laws and all that, but do I really need a car with a 6 speed that can go 180 MPH or can we drop the rear ratio to say 4:10-4:30 area add some stronger axles and driveshaft, (throw in ZL1 Tremec trans and clutch assy) and then you will have a screamer. Been considering this for my SS just because I know the gear change will surprise the holy hades out of many who think all those other mods are the end all to quick. Gears baby gears!
