    Gears, Gearing and Speed

    Ok, so I have been thinking about getting gears lately I have a M6 3:42's? and a friend has an A4 with 3:23's? I think anyway. that's not as important to me as this.

    1 how would going to 3:73's or 4:10's or any of the combinations in between effect my shift points. right now i can JUST get to 60 in second gear ( that's abotu the shift point for me normally) I can't remember first. because it happens pretty quick. and it's been 3 months since i've driven the car hard ( or much at all)

    so how will the gears effect shift points,

    would it be better to change things in the Tranny since i have to redo the synchro's anyway,

    and how would top speed be effected?

    car is a street car first drag car rarely and some sporatic auto crossing and i'm planning a heads/cam upgrade this spring.

    GU2= 2.73
    GU4= 3.08
    GU5= 3.23
    GU6= 3.42
    Hope this helps

    Why does that site warn me about harmful "Malware" being installed on my computer? Never seen that yet.

    the site was hacked at some point. it's been fixed but mozilla still has it on the "shit" list use Internet Explorer instead of firefox.
