I Need help once again..My sponsor has decided that I need to run at a different track.My question is,what is a good gear ratio for a 1/2 mile high banked clay track? I have a powerglide tranny,1:82 1st gear,and 1:1 2nd gear.My tires I guess will be a street tire,like a225/70 R15.Any help will be greatly appriciated.

I run on a 1/2 mile track and run a final drive ratio of 6.10. So if you run 3.23 or 3.42 that should put you in the ball park.

i agree 23 with that tall of tire a 6.10 is about right we run 205 series and 9 in with 6.0 or with the gm ten bolt rear ends run any where from 3.08 -3.23 with the same tires
