7 and 9 ports can pull a little more top end on straights but unless you can get it 'whoaed down' with super brakes, the 3/4/5 port engines have the infield 'grunt' advantage and playing field gets 'leveled' anyway.

The 40/46 ratio in the old trans was fun but only for 'top end'. Early brakes couldn't get the beast 'whoaed down' and my 'shift point' always hit at a bad moment when approaching 'apex' and pushed car too far into corner.
yeah I bought the 40/46 to run with a 19/25 clutchbell but didn’t realize the old gearing had a whole different set up . What exactly do you mean by “whoaed down”

That was an attempt at saying 'whoa horse'.....'STOP' !!

'19/25' is awfully tall gearing...... I have an original '14 tooth' gear set. More often than not, we were running 15/19 and carefully watched final engine alignment with transmission to avoid grinding off teeth.

that was the plan. The lrp .32 fell of in the higher rpm. I think I’m gonna go with the mito 9 port .21
