Re: Stuff we need.
We also need a 3.92 or 3.69 or 3,46 geared rear diff. Prefer 3.92 but we'll take what we can get.

Re: Stuff we need.
I would strongly recommend sticking with the 3.07 or using a 3.46. what is the average and top speeds of the course? Anything over a 3.46 will give unnecessarily high RPMs over 60 MPH.

Longest straight away is 1800 ft. I think we'll be good with a 3.69.

Re: Stuff we need.
If you are not stopping and starting much I still don't think the rear will make too much diffrence.

Re: Stuff we need.
Left half of the track. Gears 2&3 will get a heavy work out. In my 2.88 2nd gear is hard to get going from 5mph up. I want 2 to be able to pull from near dead stop to WOT fast and cruise at 60 in 3rd.

Re: Stuff we need.
A 3.69 will get you up to 36mph @4000rpm in 2nd and 60mph in 3rd.
A 3.46 will get you up to 39mph @4000rpm in 2nd and 64mph in 3rd.

Re: Stuff we need.
With my 3.69 My engine sounds like it is dying at 60 in third and thje IP begins limiting fuel about 55 or so. It does not look like the 3.46 is much better.

Planning with Strategery has begun.

We are looking to do propane this year. If anyone tried it and didn't like it send us your old stuff!
