I have a 2850lb (with me in it) chevy II. approx 750hp 440sbc. Trans brake and 5k stall. 31in hoosier qtp tire. Drive some on the street and will race 1/8 on occasion...might run 1/4 couple times per year. Has double adjustables front and back. Only thing left to finish is the rear end. Looking for a couple opinions regarding gear selection from those with experience with a similar power, weight, and tire car. I found a good deal on a 4.88 third member but wondering if the car might feel lazy off the line without more gear....or is the car light enough for that not to be the case? originally looking at a new 3rd with 5.14's or steeper but ran across this good used 4.88.
May hit with 150 shot someday and would be great if I could hook 4.88's on a 150 in the 1/8....or is that wishful thinking with that steep of gear. Thanks
