4.30 gears??? Better have drag radials on or you'll never get any traction.

It's like S/Cing your car. It's ridiculous.

Nanaki rode in my car after my gears and before the PI swap. 4.30s made a bigger difference than the PI swap did.

Not true.

It takes a little practice, eventually you'll learn how to launch in first gear.

I disagree with you unless your talking about idling off the line but then again there are plenty of cars running 11's on street tires at the strip.........

I had 4.30's, I am speaking the truth.

I did not idle off the line. It takes practice, yes when I first got the gears, I absolutely fried the tires off it, but with a little practice I had it hooking and running faster than it ever had.

Yes. I ended up feathering the clutch for most of 1st gear, this was on 275/40 Aurora tires too.
