that might work but is a little high for a final drive... depends on how much you wanna crank your motor up too...

that works out to a 7.524 final drive...

I myself amd runnin.. 7.176 as a fianl drive.. and I am turning about 6200 - 6500 depends on the track conditions...

I run a 6.33 final and run about 6,200. I would not try and run that much gear on a 3/8 track

The Tracks where I use to race on the 3/8 mile some of them rich boys run a 650 gear and on the 1/4 mile track they are running as much as a 700 gear.

Twisting them engines tight hugh?
