    I know that lower gears are available for T350's, but has anyone ever heard of installing a "close ratio" 2nd gear??? :dunno:

    For example:
    stock gears are 2.53, 1.53, 1.0
    lower gears are (I'm guessing) 2.75, 1.75, 1.0

    Could you mix/match to get: 2.53, 1.75, 1.0....??

    Consulted an expert on this matter..... a very helpful guy named John Kilgore @ kilgoretrans.com ...

    What I wanted to do does not exist. :( John says the gears are trained together so that you can't just change the 2nd gear ratio and not the 1st.

    So I guess it's a Powerglide for the next FunBuggy build...!
