This is 100% true. Buddy lost 2 tenths in the 1/8 when he switched to the 9in. Gear ratio stayed the same.On 2006-12-11 16:23, XR7Cougar wrote:
And for speed, the gears in the 8 are smaller, lighter and not going to suck up as much power (I assume this, I have never weighed them).
It'll hold up a while, but it WILL go eventually. You'll likely lose the pinion, just like we did. I have no problem trading ET for reliability.On 2006-12-12 13:11, forthman wrote:
All 8" are not the same. The center sections are different. Some like mine are cross bridged in the castings. I run 4:11 Richmond gears with MT's street drag radials. So far 100 passes or so not had any issues.
I make good power as i have broken the forward direct hub in the C4 this yr.
