    edit: btw what was this thread about?
    Consistency.

    3.50's should be a bunch still available from trucks.

    Randal likes playing with things at the track ... six months, get some seat time with a stopwatch and see what the 4.11's do for you?

    btw I ran 3.25 gears on DW in 2011, the whole time, worked ok. Not quite enough gear at the strip, a little too much on the road, but I don't have OD.

    If I don't get a GV, I'll probably run 2.47 on the drive to BG and home, and 3.50 or 3.70 on DW.

    I was thinking when I get the 9" I'll get ~3.23 with a normal positraction carrier, or tru-trac, but that ratio doesn't really do well for keeping the engine in the power band. Much like last year I was crossing the finish line at 4800 rpm and barely into 4th gear, but maybe a 3.55 gear will be a good compromise and get a tru-trac or locker. I was thinking of getting the 4.11 spool for a swap out set.

    After I install the 9" rear I'm crossing my fingers to dip into the 11's. I'm thinking 4.11s and a spool for the week?

    I don't really think you're seriuos... but what those guys said. Have you driven a go-kart with a live axle in the rain ? Damn thing steps a foot to the right when you let the clutch out. Drifting as a daily driving style can be interesting. Left turns are kind of fun, right turns sometimes just don't happen.

    The chambers were opened up a bit around the valves, but then shaved back down for a net increase in compression from 10.3 to 10.6, plus I advanced the cam from 1* advanced (4* advance minus 3* of timing chain stretch) to 8* advance to bump dynamic compression up as well, and in theory bring the power band down some so at cruising rpm it may be a bit more efficient than before. Plus the new exhaust and I have a couple other tricks I want to try out.

    Randal - is your compression going up with the latest head changes? You have to have one of the most refined BBB on the planet.
