I agree about gear ratio.  For Maxton I need to turn more RPM's in High Gear... My Motor is a dog below 3500 rpm's, for a little motor it makes big power from 4000 to 8000 but turns 8400 (Have a 8200 chip in ).

I have a 325 rear gear now (9" Ford with Locker 31 spline)  Like to find another complete third member set up with anywhere between 3.70 and 3.90 gears to try it...

See ya next weekend...

I made 3 runs this weekend, each run was a Record... I had the E/CGALT Record in June at just over  126.xx,   Run one on Saturday afternoon clocked a 130.xx for a new Record, This morning made a 136.xx pass to up Yesterdays Record. (but launced with motor to cool), last round today, warmed engine to 180 and then made a 140.xx pass to up the Record again,(my fasted pass ever in the car, only my 5th pass ever)...

Car was smooth and straight, the front end alignment cured the wandering. Still very fat in first gear from idle to 5,000 rpm, but from 5000 to the chip she pulls strong... Need to launch her harder in Oct..

Not bad for a little 255 inch motor on gas ???

See you in October.

Cajun..Contact one of the NASCAR suppliers for "special" non standard 9" Ford ring and pinions, possibly Tex Racing. I bought a polished 2.86 off e-bay for $15.00 plus shipping. I bet there are 10 or more sets between 3.00 and 2.70. Good Luck. If new hang on to your wallet if used I bet not so bad....................................JD
