Ok with the tranny talk below brought up somthing that I have been wanting to find out.
well I have a saginof 3 speed in my car. we are curretnly running in 2nd gear. my dad always raced in second gear and thinks thats the best.
well some of the other guys at the track says that runing in first is better. they say that it saves on rotating weight too. dont know. would like to get some good opinions on this.
also what gears would you run in 1st?? I am switching to 6.50 in 2nd for next year.

i WOULD RUN 650 IN THIRD GEAR IF YOU RUN IT IN 2ND YOU WILL BUT AN ENGINE BEFOR THE NIGHT IS OVER TO RUN IN SECOND YOU WILL NEED TO BE ARROUND A 410 AND IT WILL GIVE YOU A A FINAL OF ABOUT 722

if every thing is under control your not fast enough
