    3rd gear?

    you ever notice when you shift from 2/3 that third feels a little under powered fo a split second? even high rpms in 2nd? Am I missing something or is that just the ratio? Stock ws.6 rear.

    Get some 3.73's or 4.10's and it will go away.

    Got 4.10's, and it is never underpowered. 3rd seems a little short in normal driving conditions for some reason though, almost better to skip it and go to fourth. It seems like 3rd is only a slightly higher ratio than second. However, in race conditions 3rd is highly necessary. I never had the experience of stock gears.

    When you gonna put gears in your car Dip?

    (Edit) I just noticed you answered that question, nevermind. A few years dude? Damn, you ever rode in one of those with a set of gears?

    Marriage. That's why I sold my Cobra is b/c I f*cked around got my head full of dreams getting engaged to this chic. Then she went psycho a couple months later, and I took the money I got from the Cobra and bought a hooked up Z28, then dumped 3 grand in more mods.

    She suddenly turned into a dud in the sack anyway, so it was a wise choice to spend my money in something always fun!!

    If I could have put nitrous on her, then I might not have kicked her to the curb!

    Strap the bottle to her back, and put the nozzle in her ear, HIT THE BUTTON AN BLOW ME AWAY!
