Does anyone make a gear higher than a 5.57 for a 10 bolt chevy? Thanks in advance.

I run 3.73 in my car with a 3 speed tranny in 2nd gear it gives me a 6.27 final. Eddie

What size track are you running with that Eddie? I primarily run a 1/4 mile track and right now my final drive is 6.55 but I'm going to put in a set of 4.11 to get it up to about 6.90. I was just wondering if there is anything larger than a 5.57 because I would like to run the tranny in 3rd instead of 2nd (I'm sure I don't need to explain why). But while I'm on the subject, can anyone give me a guesstimate of the final drive ratio I'd need for a 3/8 track. My tires have an average of about 82" of rollout give or take an inch or two. Thanks again.

You'll be wanting to stay around the 6:00 to 6:33 final for a 3/8ths, provided your car gets good forward bite.
