Thats a hard question to answer, would need to know more info like track size, engine output, tire size, car weight etc.

there is calulators in the tool box but like dirtbuster said you need all the variable to figure in just how much it will turn.

I run on a 3/8 mile track med bank. The tire is 85" roll out. Looking to build a 383 or 333 to rev high but I would like to know where the current gearing will put it.
THANKS

sorry for the delay.

Mph x gear ratio x 336
RPM= -------------------------
tire diameter

well that didnt come out right.
mph x gear ratio x 336 divided by tire dia.
