In short, he says 4.10's are horrible gears for the street, and that they are only good for the strip from a dead stop. If I get 4.10's, they will ruin all my sweet spots in the power band. For instance, downshift into 3rd @ 70mph on the highway. If I were to go 4.10's, I would be shifting out of 3rd too quickly, thus giving my competitor the advantage, becuause they would pull ahead when I shifted. Same goes for second gear. If I was racing someone from a 40mph roll, I would have to shift instantly, and would lose to a stock geared snake. That's basically the opposite of what I had assumed. What I want is more low end passing power. For instance, if I need to merge ahead of someone at a low speed, I want to be able to pass them easier. I thought gears would significantly improve my passing power in 2nd and 3rd gear around town, becuase the combination of shorter gearing + our high redline would match perfectly. Basically, not i'm just confused. I was going to get 4.10's for Christmas, but now I don't know what to do. I'm also afraid i'll run out of gear in 1st too fast. I hear my first gear will end at like 20mph at redline with the 4.10's. People say don't fear the gear, and DO IT! But I want a significant around town improvement in passing power. Part of me thinks that gears primarily fool you into thinking your faster, becuase of the shortness of the gear ratios. The other part of me thinks that these shorter ratios can help me tremendously at low rpm, and at high rpm becuase we have 6800rpm redlines! Please help me out here, Christmas is coming and if I don't order really soon it'll be too late!
