I doubt the 3.21 is faster than the 3.92. Physically it's easier for the engine to turn the 3.92 gears and therefore get off the line faster.

A quick Google search turned up 5.9 seconds for the 3.92 and 6.8 for the 3.21, but that was just one set of results.

I was talking about trucks with 8 speed versus trucks with the old 5 or 6 speed because my truck with 3.21 gears and hemi and 8 speed is faster than previous rams that I have drive with the 5 and 6 speed

Thumbs up Definately 3:92 with 8spd = snap your neck.

Yes, the 8spd has a gear ratio of:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 R
4.696 3.130 2.104 1.667 1.285 1.00 0.839 0.667 3.300

and the 5spd or 6spd has a gear ratio of:

1st 3.00:1 2nd 1.67:1 2nd Prime (or 3rd in 6spd) 1.50:1 3rd 1.00:1 4th 0.75:1 Reverse 3.00:1

Now 3:21 gears vs 3:92 gears, obviously the 3:92 would be a neck snapper, literally.
