    4k launch is nothing crazy. I plan to launch there even if I have 3.27's.

    I would think that 2.73's are harder on the shafts at launch due to the faster tire speed of the taller gear....Not vice versa....

    I agree, still just dont think its that crazy haha. This car doesnt make the torque where most of the blower cars on this site do.

    2.73s will net less torque to the half-shafts than 3.27s, which will be less destructive. 2.73s will be harder on the transmission/driveshaft than 3.27s.

    You'll figure it out Corey. Btw, no worries on the new worst. I'll be surprised if I even beat that.
