    Question for the Gear Guru\'s!

    What gears do you guys think I should run?

    I've got 1 ton front and rear, np205 and sm465. I'm going to be running a 500lb torque motor that won't rev beyond 4,000 rpm. I'm looking at probably around 40" of tire (give or take a little).

    I have no need to go faster than 75 mph. If I want to go fast I get my BMW.

    SO! What should I look at getting? I don't know a whole lot about gearing so some help would be great! /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    THANKS!

    4.88 will get you about 60mph in the 2500rpm range
    there are a few gear ratio calculators online if you try a google search
