I'm gonna run a powerglide in high gear, the general consensous for a 3/8 mile track is a 6.20 gear, will a 6.33 gear give me more rpm's than the 6.20 gear and would the 6.33 be a better choice. Thanks Eddie

when your figuring how many rpm you want to pull the higher the number of the gear ratio the more you will turn say you have a 3.08 and you want more rpm then the next step would be a 3.23. as for your choices there they bolth should work for you depending on what rpm you want to turn and what you have for a tire roll most guys around here are running those gears with 83-86 in tires

why would you want to run in low it is better for the life of the tranny in 1:1 gear. i run my t350 in 2nd gear just because i have to run a 7.5 rear end if i could run a ford i would run in drive
