i know i hear about alot of guys running in first gear on the lil 1/4 mile bull rings but what does everybody think about doing it on a 1/2 mile. last year i ran a 3.23 in 2nd gear with 82 in tires turned about 5500 most nites and seemed to either be out motored or out geared so i'm building a good motor this year and can't realy aford to buy a gear and reskin the car also so i was going to try a 2.28 i had laying outback from an old skin car and was going to try that with 83 in tires but i'm not real sure if the tranny can take that what do you all think

I RUN A 2.42 REAR GEAR IN FIRST WITH THE T-350. IT PULLS HARD OUT OF THE CORNERS AND THE ENGINE BRAKING IN FIRST GEAR MEANS I DON'T NEED TO USE TO MUCH BRAKE ENTERING THE CORNERS. THE TRANNY HAS NEVER BEEN A PROBLEM. I RAN A 3/8 MILE HIGH BANK TRACK, YOU SHOULD BE GOOD WITH THE 2.23 ON THE 1/2 MILE.

ya i ran my cruiser over there in 1st with a t-400.i just got a set of flat top hyper pistons and gonna try one of those speed pro cheater cams and might get a my heads redone had alot of seals leaking last year and was oil foul'n plugs alot. i'm think'n that gear i had was alot of the trouble plus going from a dish top to flat tops and will help alot too. and ya i know a few that are up around over 11:1 have you heard if alta is gonna come to there sences and change there rules so we can come over without buying a bunch of stupid stock crap?

not sure a bout alta rules ,there banqute is the 18th of januray, maybee they will give use the rule sheet for 2003. if your going to redo your heads this winter,a 5 angle valve job helps alot over the stock 3 angle, it cost a nlittle more but its worth it. i can send u the angles to run if intrested.
