Need some help deciding on a gear. Running a 383 with 4340 forged crank and h-beam rods, dont want to turn more than 7200 rpm on a 3/8 mile medium banked track. Running on g-60's for tires and running gas.

start with a 5.43 and go from there that'll give you a good base, your not going to break anything if you turn it a little harder if that is'nt he right gear.. most guys run that or a 5.29

Dirtbandit, I run a forged 383 setup, flinstone tires (60s) and gas also. I run 5.67 on a very fast high bank .3 mile and a fast 3/8 mile with sweeping flat turns. Car turns pretty consistent around 6800-7000rpm and has gobs of pull off the corner for both tracks.
