Night Trains Daddy
I'll probably make 50 passes this year and will probably never autocross...should I go ahead and swap with a GT? What would you do?
yep what he said, we put one in our car when it was about 2 weeks oldAmazonRacing said:The main reason to go Solid axle is to run sticky tires. You will break axles with sticky tires real quick. The stock 28 spline axles and track loc won't hold up at all. So once you get a gt rear you'll have to spend another $600-$1000 to beef it up enough to handle the torque of these cars.
Thanks Rick. You know I have been considering going to 4:30's with this swap but I don't want to run out of gear in the 1/4 . I think it's highly unlikely that I would hit redline in 4th. at the 1320 mark or before, But then again I just don't know. I also plan to make a few 1/8th mile passes and I'm not sure how the 4:30's would effect that either. I'm all for adding a little more gear if it will work. If you have any knowlege of this on the 01 5-speed cars like mine then let me know.AmazonRacing said:Razor the power your car is making solid axle is a must. With Linn's car I went to 4:30's and found them to be perfect. I had 4.10's in my car pretty much same setup as you but in a 97 and thought the 4.10's came up just a tad short. Good luck with the combo and let us know how it turns out.
