    I see that the 2010 comes with a few axle ratio options. Which is better for street performance 3.73 or 3.55? I don't plan to drag race but may go to a road course track.

    what is the standard ratio?

    which is limited slip posi?

    3:73 gears is the best middle ground option out there. You will have enough umpf for street play and track play. Yet it won't kill your mpg on the free way or driving around.

    However, I'm very happy with my 4:10's. Just going 75-80 the rpms are too high. :(

    Don't go any less then 3.73s. I have them on my 01 GT and they are perfect. At 80mph I'm cranking out about 2,800RPM so thats not bad at all and I still get around 24 mpg on the highway.

    Agreed with the above posters. 3.73:1 is a great ratio for all-around use. I'm running 4.10:1 in both my cars and love them, but to be honest it's probably a bit aggressive for most people. I think 3.73 is the sweet spot.
