Well its really not that I'm worried about my top speed with the car, I would say that would be my least concern. I want a lower gear just to get it moveing faster. I want a faster 1/4 mile time. I don't want so much low end that I cant get the car to stick to the ground. I like to run the gears and don't really want to be shifting none stop. All the speed I pick up with the gears I dont want to loose by shifting constantly. Maybe a little less harsh on the rear end.

Well when my car was bolt on w/4:10s it wouldn't break the tires loose from just mashing the gas, after my 232/236 cam it would tho. Traction wasn't really a problem. I wouldn't let that influence your decision. You do shift outta 1st kinda soon tho.

you will feel going to 3.73 gears no doubt, ive changed the rear end on all 5 of my camaro's. The reason why people say you wont feel it is not very likely theyve done it but comes from the fact that if your gonna do it why not do 4.10's. Regardless going to 3.73 gears is still going to be noticable and your car is going to be quicker and if 4.10's is not going to be an option for you then do the 3.73's, to me gears other then turbo, H/C, nitrous or supercharger is one of the best mods you can do. It sets a good foundation for taking advantage of the mods you will do in the future or have done by being in your powerband and getting there quicker.
