I WOULD BE HAPPY WITH THOSE TIMES.JERICO TOLD ME THE NEW DR-4 USES ONLY 12.5% HP TO THE WHEELS.BETTER THAN 21% LOSS WITH AN AUTO.

I came up roughly the same time's as chris did. Acording to my power speed calulator it calling for 4.52 gearing with a 32" diamiter tire's, that's seem's a little steep for me but that what it say's good luck with your car and have a safe racing season. bz

Rear Gear

I would say that is about right. I run a 33" tire with a 4.29 gear & go through at 7150rpm.
