What kind of tranny do you have and how much rollout do you run don't sound like you have very much gear in that thing.

you'll have more trouble tring to hit the right gear on a t350 fast then it is worth p for gear guys are running 410 in 2nd at my track which is a 1/2 mile with shorter tires then that i think your best bet would be to try to find a 273 or 308 and run in first with that tall of tire on a 1/4 mile

on a 1/4 mile 2.73 will work fine with the 3.08 you really need to control how u mash the gas comin out the 2.73 should give u around 6000 rpms

Going by my tires your rollout would be around 88". With 92" tires I turn 6500 in the heat race with 3.08's 7.76 final. Of course I have more motor. Do you have a tach?

Yeah, i have a tach, but it doesnt tell me much because i am blowing the tires off. usually about 6500 go into the turn
