Will.

Your Studebaker is looking good at the starting gate pushing a Cd = 0.32.

There is an immense amount of information lurking about LSR Studes but it seems to me they are still a one-off type build; many differences.  

It is suggested you think very carefully about what you want from the car as once started it seems to take on its own life.  As you already know, many folks out there that know a lot about these cars like Gary Hart, Charles, Hooley, and many others whom I do not know personally but have provided very helpful information; recommendation - talk to them.  

Building a Stude will be a gestalt.  Big issues: Class(es)!, HP, front end selection that affects engine position and class, rear end, chassis configuration, and small changes leading to big changes! Suggested ROM for starters from my perspective: triple time and double dollars.

If there is any questions or photos you would like, please feel free.  I certainly do not have many of the answers but I am, note present tense, in the midst of many details.  

I have a PowerPoint file of 450 LSR Stude pictures that have graciously alighted the internet. If you would like a copy, I could mail but the file is big.

Warmest regards.
John.

Hello.

Does anyone have recommendations on transmission gear ratios for a 5 speed, 3000 lb car (approx.), and SBC in the 7000-8000 rpm range running at ETCA-Maxton or LTA-Loring.  Please note whether ratios apply to a push start or not.

Thanks!
John.

John,  I  have a 4 speed so not sure what you would want in a 5 speed as far as gears. With the larger cu in you are running I am sure you can pull a decent overdrive ratio.  Since I only have 255 cu in, I use a close ratio 4 speed so I lose as few RPM's between shifts as possible.

See you in 2 weeks.
