Questions?? gearing help?

Just wondering if someone could help out, i run on an outdoor track, pretty high speed and was wondering if i go to a 14 tooth clutch bell will this help fuel milage or hurt it, i have a 13 tooth bell on now. Also will this make the truck favor nose down jumping if it is running out of gear, it sounds like it's turning some good rpm's around the track.. thanks...

I would think it would help the fuel mileage because the engine wont be turning as many RPM's. Dont hold me to that though.

That's the best way to find out, try it and see. I don't think it will be a huge difference either way.
