I was needing some advice on what gear ratio to go with on a 150 to 175 ft. pit (not a bog). The truck is a full size f150 that weights about 4250#, I should have around a 900-1000hp to work with. ( c-headed 604cid).

Another big question that we would need answered is. What type of tires are you planning on running? Boggers, Cuts, Paddles, Scoops? Is this a Bogger only or will it see some street use?

I guess my question should be what kind of wheel speed should I shoot for with kind of power and length of the track. I will be running cut boggers 39.5x18x15 on the rear and 38.5x11.5x15 on front.

Could you fellas share your quick formula to calculate the wheel speed?

What imput values do you need to know: engine rpm, drive ratio, and tire diameter values to do the math.... ??

Thanks!
