I've never seen what all the hooplah was. A bodies are so dang light, they just don't need the low gear set. I'd love to see some comparisons between the two. You can do anything to a car to the point of diminished returns.
I have no clue why the HELL I missed the weight. Yeah with that much of a fatass, the low gear set might show an advantage.3350 is considered heavy for a drag car. From the little bit of research I have done, a heavy car like mine should see some benefit….but…that is why I posted to get others takes on it
I got a vague overall question, trying to work this out in my head how it would workout, isn't it gonna take a certain amount of mph eg.. 30-40 mph before any gearing catches up to the stall speed ? Which at that point probably at least 1/2 of the 60', more 1st will catch up slightly quicker but also have to shift a lot sooner with a wider drop ratio. Would the change have an effect on the speed it stalls at ? From what I understand lowers it. Wouldn't more stall be a better route if something is off ?
I wouldn't spend the money to make it happen. The effect will be negligible in a light car. If you're one of those who will do anything for a 1/10 of a second, go for it. I had a buddy that scraped undercoating off a car (30 lbs) in search of the ever elusive tenth of a second, then again he was a NHRA Class racer.
