How much MPH would you expect to fall off from a 3.73 to a 4.11? The car trapped 3-4mph less than usual.

100lbs makes a difference and could be why it was slower

I can see 1-2mph, but not 3-4mph... and it ran the same as it always did at dorchester. It only goes .60's at Bowman in the winter.

My Moser 12 bolt had the gear set up wrong from moser. Super tight, actually ruined the gear in 600 miles. It ran 3-4 less mph than it did with the 10 bolt. Had another gear setup and it picked the mph back up.


Hmm. That's odd. Mine seems to be fine and has a few thousand miles on it now. It's just loud.

Second gear? Parking brake? Hair in his eyes? Left his balls at home?

Maybe this caused it.





The trans ended up taking a dump shortly after. Thankfully everything else in the transmission was not hurt. Rob was able to get me up and running in no time. Upgraded to a steel piston if I recall.
