I would personally love to have a 373 gear. Nice road gear with a little get up and go to it.

I too think the 3.73 will be nice mix .. I had 4.10s in my 98 cobra, but that had a different TQ curve and redlined at 7200 ...

I'm doing 3.90's but anyone who does 4.10 will not be very inconvenienced. I just do a lot of multi hour driving so I still want a significant overdrive.

I'm thinking 3.73-3.90 range, I don't wanna lose my top end. Plus 4.10 or more and other work will be required...

3.73's would be weak on this car. With as tall as a tire it has, 3.90 should be the minimum, that would put the gearing on par with most stock cars (not a performance gear). 4.10's are OK, but not much better. It has room for much more gear than that. Really, again because of those monster height wheel/tires in the back, this car needs some serious gear. With the stock gearing the car does over 160 in 4th.

You can use this site to look at some information:

3.45s
http://www.car-videos.net/tools/spee...B1=Recalculate

Hmm .. check out what MPH the top of 3rd is here .. bump that rev limiter up a bit and I bet you see a 10th or so off the stock times ... high 12's easy ..


3.90
http://www.car-videos.net/tools/spee...B1=Recalculate

4.10

it shouldn't need bumping of the rev limiter at the track. There is enough room in 3rd to finish the 1/4 without shifting into 4th. 3rd should be good enough for ~114 mph based on some other calculators.

I can see Evils point using your calculator. The car will only be running at 1900 rpm at 60mph with 4.56 gears!
