Gearing this bad boy
Ok, Gearing this car is a pain in the butt.
with the stock spur the MAX pinion you can fit is a 37t and the 37 didn't even fit right. too tight. (36 is real world) With a 37t FDR was at 4.108 I wasn't even breaking 110 degrees with a 17.5 blinky
So I got the vertical motor mount and 37t would not fit at all.
Changed the spur to a 78t(stock is 80t) and had to grind a bit of the vertical mount so the 37t would fit. Now FDR is 4.005 getting better.
I now have 74t and 75t spurs coming. I also have 37t diffs coming at well.
I also have 19t layshaft gears as well, but that is not direction i want to go.
