This is why I'm asking for "Real" results from someone that's done it rather than guessing or relying on calculators.
I've read that a gear reduction only effects your ET,
and traps speeds remain aproximately the same if all other parameters remain equal.
With the limited experience I have, I believe that to be true.
I also believe that regardless of power adders or internal upgrades, like cam/heads,
RPM at the finish line will remain constant with tire size x gear ratio x trans gear ratio.
I have a bud with an SRT10 Ram who runs 4.56's and M&H 390/40R17 DR's (29" Tall) and a 100 shot
so there's no way I'm going to run more power than him, so I cant understand how 4.56's could be "too much" gear for my Ram with substantially less power.
As I said before, should it be too low, although I cant imagine it
an easy fix is to just go to a taller drag radial, right?
