a set of 2.73 and run 1st gear or a set of 4.55 and run second gear. Then just adjust tire size to fit your desires.

you could get by with a 3.08 also but like flywheel said you'll have to adjust with tire roll we used to run a 3.08 on a 1/4 with about a 74-75 in roll and on the 3/8 we useded a 78-79

you really like to twist em dont you, 3.08's would give him a 7.7 final with a turbo 350 in first gear (1.52). I run 2.73's with 78-82inch tires and I turn right around 5800-6000.

I've always ran a 2.73 when running both size tracks. As long as the 1/4 isn't too paper clip styled you will do fine.

I'd run a656 on the 3/8 use a slightly smaller tireand just hold your foot in it you'll have to run in deep and breathe it then hit it again to keep it rolling om the 1/4
