I run a lot lower gears than most of you I run a 656 on3/8 and a688 on a 1/4 I turn my motors pretty hard but always have good luck with themand these gears are at tracks where you stay on it there not dragstrips and parking in the corners

We run a 620 gear almost every night on our 3/8 mile high banked track in an IMCA SC - 2900 lbs. I think that this will get you very close. Good luck!
