I'm running a 2.74 gear in the transmission and a 2.29 gear in the rear end. My tach reads about 4650rpms max. Most of the other racers are leaving me. I know the max. rpms I want to turn is somewhere around 5500. I'm running a bone stock 305 engine stock cam and everything else. What would be the best gear ratio for me to go up to. Rookie racer in need of some help. Thanks.

If your running a 1/4 mile track, I would try to get your final around 6.00 to 6.50.
