I run a 3/8 semi banked track, clay. My car seems real flat on take offs and off the corners. I have a 86 monte carlo 355ci 202 heads. th350 tranny motor hits 5400 RPM at end of staights. I run 583gear. I tryed a 620 gear that was to much gear. I am thinking of running a direct drive set up next year do you think that will fix the problem? any help and suggestion would be great.

I was turning 6000 with the 620 but the car seemed slower.

Make sure your tach is correct. Is your cam too small ? Is the cam installed right ? A good 355 should get to 7,500 rpm. I wouldn't run it like that a lot. What's the condition of your valve springs or the lifters ? If your engine only gets the 5,400 then the problem is in the engine.
