I am using the 4 speed wide ratio toploader with some 26" tall slicks, on a 302. I was wondering what gear ratio you would run with this setup in the 1/4 mile.. dont wanna be bogging 4th gear thru the traps... Wont a 3.73 be around 5K in third gear thru the traps and a 4.11 around 6500??? thanks again.

This all depends on what your trap speed is

Just for comparison, at 111 mph and 3.50 rear end and a 1:1 fourth gear my coupe with 26" tires is right around 5500 rpm.

4.10/4.11's are around 5900 at 108-110mph. Perfect!
