I run at a 3/8 mile track this is our first car and I have been real happy with the results. I have just been building it as I go. I'm thinking of changing the gears currently I am running 373 gears behind a powerglide I am running in low. I am thinking of changing to a 411. Any advice would be appreciated Thanks

from 6.56 to 7.23 wow that is a big jump!! I dont think i would try that on a 3/8 mile track unless you want to turn like 10 grand or something

depending on whcih low gear you have in that glide that 3.73 may even be to much whats the roll out of the rear tires you are going to run with a 1.76 it puts you at a 656 you would need around a 88 in tire to be in the 6800 range. you couldn't get tires big enought to work with a 4.11

try running a smaller tire for a little extra gear getting off the corner.
