Re: Rear Gears Question!
I agree with Gumby.
Even with 3.73's I start in 2nd sometimes.
And with the higher HP you have compared to me, I would go with 3.55 gears,
especially if you plan on doing any more future power-related mods.
UNLESS you are a total-drag-racer-boy...
Also, do you go high speeds often? Like above 75? If so, you won't like
anything above 3.55 much because your RPMs will be higher. No more cruising
at 2K RPM.
