The 3.07 for the rear gears is only related to the driveshaft.... Consider that the driveshaft is hard connected to the pinion yoke, or yolk as some call it... the driveshaft continously speeds up as the car travels faster...

Well, I had every intention of it being a little over a week from now, but obviously I can't make that one.... So, I'm waiting to see what the schedule is for October... and how it fits in my work schedule.... If you plan on heading this way, let me know... you can stay at our house...prior to heading to Beeville... but I might put you to work helping load the car and lots of other things... It's about a 2.5 hour trip to Beeville, so we will be getting a hotel room or a big camper for down there...

It means we can stretch each gear out just a bit further so I'm not shifting out of first in the first 60 feet...

3.07.... And yes, it is a very close ratio....

Yup... I may have copied sixth wrong... It is a satellite connection and not real clear on the reception.

yeah, in most setups... unless its truly custom, your top gear won't be higher than the gear before it...lol (or "lower" depending on your definition of the terms)

ummmmm....not quite.


what it means is that 3.07 rotations of the PINION gear and driveshaft means one rotation of the ring gear and the wheels.

Spike has explained the rear end gearing thing to me in detail on the phone too.

One day I'll start letting Spikes genius soak in.

Thanks, I knew what he was referring to and read it as correct... Yes, the 3.07 is 3.07 rotations of the driveshaft to one rotation of the ring gear and wheel/tire...

Ah crap, yes I meant driveshaft/pinion to tire/ring gear. I reread what I wrote and see that would confuse someone since it would be 1 : 1.

I'ld love to have you along....

If I manage 200 mph, Doug wants to ride along for a pass...

I'm hoping to hit somewhere around 220... To my knowledge, the record for a 5th Gen stands currently at 204.98.

That was the MTI car out of Atlanta... Twin Turbo's feeding a supercharger... It was just a bit over 1000 RWHP... I think 1050 IIRC... They say it takes 1000 RWHP to go 200 in the standing mile...

I'm also considering the Open road Race in West Texas... it's around 52 miles one way on a public highway, closed for the race...It starts in one town and you race to the other town... Eat lunch, do whatever, and then race back... They have the cars classed, and I would be in the unlimited...

There is one stretch where the unlimiteds are passing a speed gun at or well over 200.... That would be a blast...
